SoupIts passage is marked by a grotesque concert, composed and performed by accursed flesh. It is a demented chorus of little noises that churns the stomach and agitates the nerves. Dry clicks, as a forest of bone labours at its joints, keep the sporadic beat with each twist and shift of its serpentine form. Wet grinding forms a constant dull bass as it slides its moist self over grit and filth. A cacophony of sharp pops punctuates the air as its ragged, membreanous skin tears with each laborious flex. Sickly slaps clap and applaud its own corrupt performance as its sloshes and churns within its interior murk. This foul music ripples back and forth in the half-dark as it drags itself through its subjugated dominion, over rooftops and behind doors nailed shut by shaking hands an age ago.Soup by Twyce
Its claws puncture stone and mortar as it seeks purchase as it traverses towers and spires long since abandoned, even by the dead for not even they are allowed respite nor comfort. These places where it dwe

Thinking themselves thieves, they feed
on the ripe as the cart owner on the highway
fingers peels, rinds, forgotten leaves and listens
to the voices of his customers like moving cars.
To articulate herself she keeps the cream
in one hand and licks the rust off her
once black kettle. The tea is waiting
on the counter to be drowned as she says to him:
Let me live in my ashes.
Her echolalia says: scissors, sliver as the image
of diseased pigeon wings echoes on her eyelids.
Twenty years of echolalia.
There is a boy who lives in his own palms,
collecting teeth from the children who fight.
At six o'clock he wonders what he is going to do
with the rest of his life knowing:
Words are not worth the time.
He will wake up one day with crushed petals
in his teeth from his mother's prized gardenias.
The gardenias tell the silent boy's mother
stories of noise and white noise. They slip
her nightmares like a

WritersForArt Features - Issue 1WritersForArt Features - Issue 1WritersForArt Features - Issue 1 by WritersForArt
WritersForArt is a club helping to link the literature community with the other art communities:
We would like to invite you all to become members of this delightful concept - that of using your literary skills to comment on artistic work in a creative manner, rather than the bog standard critique. A poem, a short ditty, a humorous anecdote or just a witty interpretation. These are the things that we encourage here.
We are very glad to present you our first selection of features.
Every featured artist is introduced by a comment of one of the Founders of WritersForArt and 4 thumbs representing the featured artist's gallery.
Featured artist: RSBoswell
Comment by Amberlouie
"RSBoswell's 38-piece gallery provides a fantastic blend, paintings of scenery and every-day stills. These exceptional paintings depict a certain depth - a concept behind a concept. RSBoswell's work sh
