Eat my words

a wrongful truth of warm citrus and lumpy water
watching my mouth move in curls and downturns
a discolored sock of clay and a screaming blossom tree
watching my wrinkles in a whirlpool licking the tide of my eyebrows
an ink splotch on a white flock and a rotten slice of apricot
watching my stranger eyes staring back into me a rising blue tornado of delirium
a smell of vomit bleaching flesh and a hasty bee prick
watching my face melt from the ceiling and playing with the noose
an imposing stench and the scent of decaying beauty
watching myself was a terrible mishap
a mirror of wrongful truth and a deceiving guest with knives for feet
watching myself and telling lies
A bleeding knuckle weeping ashes and bones
a puddle of pale sand abused and willowing
watching myself
watching my mouth
a wrongful truth

I would say yes! Considering Australia is called 'down under' and we're below them (only in a geographical sense of course)
and thank you, appreciate the read and comment!
