Blowjob Skull In Eternity
The skull that loved to give blowjobs
with jaw fallen off.
It will exist as a skull longer than it did
as a face.
The mandible will be off the skull
longer than it was on,
Longer than the face ever thought of itself as a face
or as a face on a skull
on a skeleton.
The skull lasts longer than the boyhood face,
longer than it thought of itself
as a boyloving head
it will be a skull.
Your skull lasts longer than your name.
Your skull lasts longer than your brain.
The amount of time you spent sucking cocks in your life
juxtaposed to your skull
is like a mayfly compared to a sequoia.
Cocksucker in Eternity liking to think of yourself
as a Cocksucker in Eternity,
what are you most after all
but a skull?
