Sex Core. A Poem by Robin Ouzman Hislop

Sex Core

its pulse drives  
the mindless mindful crowd 
gravitates it into 

into a faceless faced
where multiple saccades 
erogenous zones

 - convert invert revert

regenerate in helpless drift 
the machinations of our existence 
a suppressed surge - the numbed norm 

a dance of marionettes plastered 
on glittering billboards 
that announce us 
their shadows cast into
	 rebirth of tomorrow’s abyss

relentless the sex core consumes 
its victims like sacrificial slaves 
led to the slaughter – 

as our heads
float by on platters served 
the menu of the day – bubble & pop.
