Athens, GA; January 1999To Derick Varn's previous piece     Wyrd: Grendel's LamentTo Derick Varn's next piece


Pushing in
with violence 
that raptures and sells the
emotion out. 
Ripping petals away to get 
to the juicy 
center after breaking the 
thorns off
he stem of her psyche.
The machine
powered voice echos sardonic
laugher, eating
her tender, clammy flesh.
Permission to
enter the shrine of the body
does not yet
equal the right to start to 
rape the 
mind with a dildo hidden
behind other
intimate actions.
