you want me dripping bandages
completely covered but still sexy
layers falling off

do you want to see what’s under my skin?

I’ll call you daddy if you want
decay is just so sexy, right?
preserve me, daddy
keep me wrapped in you

you want to keep me rotting
want to take me from my homeland
and put me on display

I’m the British Museum’s newest monster

I am currently a creative writing phd student at lancaster university and subeditor for the hysteria collective having a go at this all ‘online presence’ kind of deal. I enjoy tea, harry potter, dogs, feminism, greek mythology, reading, and poetry, in that order.
