Button sighs unsated

A button bold anti-
cipated stiff.
Streams in stars and silence.
It’s important even if
a darkly tear of more
(or evidence of welcomes).

Of broken laps, bones
and in its laughter thin.
Is evermore; is sullen said.
No or never think unpaid
stated stale (if frowned upon)

Yet in sinking, yes
and maybe so —
she inhales its darkness asking;
“Is it done or less?”
But therein lies its sighs unsated

  1. You soar in the absurdist rarified air, brother; really got me ramped up to tackle pummeling grammar, and letting loose the dogs of madness. I like your lines /yet in sinking, yes/and maybe so/.

  2. “she inhales its darkness” This is spot-on realism — grammar be damned — and we all know what it feels like… or will before it’s all over.

  3. I absolutely adore the thought of a button going unsated because he can’t get into that hole. 🙂

    So I read this as being about a guy paying a prostitute for services. At the end, I hear her asking if he’s done or if he has more deviance in mind.

    Lies its size unsated … he has a big penis, and he has more he wants to do with it. :X

    But I’m probably misreading.

  4. This was an interesting challenge by Paul. I suspect you’ve nailed it here…,much more to his intent than what I did. I love the actual sound of the title. I can kind of roll it around on my tongue…and it sparks the interest.
