Please More Kristen Pfaff Pretty [Today’s Magazine Word Collage]

And, I hold ‘Bridges’ back
… TIGHTLY…
like Pit Bulls upon
STRAINING leashes.
I chose a Corner
to Devour the
UnCoMfOrTaBlEnEsS
of knowing
… that you’ve snap/ped
the neck of CONTROL.
Whilst, Weeding
the Pathway away from
the ‘Chaos’… which
I cursed myself with
… trying to Edge…
a ‘Shackle’ to Golden Cage.
