For the reader? Spoken word? Performance art? Can a poem be all three? #DalsonBallet

house of o’dwyer for Dalston Ballet

 

 

Crouch down

bent double

over the counter

 

blunt force trauma

fill the empty interior

shut me up

 

shut me down

manage the beast

stop the hysteria

 

work for the tongue

roughly speaking

worship and adore

 

under the weather

come in my eye

post traumatic stress disorder

 

let me go

out patient

I can suck at it myself

 

taste the meat

feel the heat

down I come

 

enjoy the ache

Medicate me

choke on me

 

prevarication

i don’t need anyone

the taste of it

shit

he’s back, for more

I can’t take all of it

split in two

 

brain on the floor

rub my face in it

fight me for it

 

ride me home

teach me what

my mouth is for
