Passion For Jealousy Set in Pre-stressed Concrete

Wind it up
Wind it up
Stranded metal wire
Anchored before the pour

Dyna bolted into bone
Pelvic hooked
A ventral spine
Drawn up to a slingshot jaw


You may have felt
that sharp kissed metal end
Wiring the base of my tongue


Heavy set slurry
Choking stone
Wind it up wind it up and
Hold it there
Tension ten ton tight

No fixing here
No drilling holes
Cut one strand and…

The whip
A whelt
6oo mil of cold rolled steel
bullet sprung from one eye


A look like that
You know

Can really kill.
