from The Rapture of Eddy Daemon

Adonis 600

Adonis Mazarin is his real name, cues male virility
and symmetry. Swoon at clarities of skin—gauge
beauty and the honeyed baritone. Pre.static H.Um
of grace, manner and V/shaP.ed torso, tA.ll/dark
and scul/pt.Ed symmetry—face/half mirroring he
the day unshaven skin jaw, mouth curved. I/zatio,
Eddy has face. Eddy has Adonis, has good genes.
This valid marker against the Age of Hinge, r/mot
a seduction to proceed. Eat my face, my lips/chin.
In life a prima copulism is a pyros relevance. Not.
The rarity of Re.cAll hears the P.ure Lo.V.er. D.Y.
Mazarin lives our organs, lives saunter and struts
a climax. A.M.ere loo.que of love. I cc.An here.I.
A Paris, stressors suck off panic disorder. Eddiiii.

Icon 1700

Com the Cond of Sus isen from rist. Dead believers
tag the rected from the Lord of Air. In the ical book,
Eddy “Thessa” Daemon hears eared econs as pretrib
left behind. Surre me a lovely femme to put in place
of blog trolls. The Risty Rets concoct foppy mirages.
Will they eschew the Ologs with canted crowds? Ols,
Rets, or the gamey mighty, cringe and fret. Raptus re
returns to carry off these turas. Never mind the Koine
Greek of taken. Never mind the harpazō of Corinth.
How sweet, stir whir, are these botched slips? Sweet.
Very sweet. Virility’s whipcrack will never fumble.
Thessa Eddy lives to love women. No recall as reve.
No rapiēmur. Pick parousia, not ousia. Quck these
italics mocking the norm. Ianics of relief seek thera.

Jest 1996

Primitive acursen are to blame. They lay down an enfilade
of same, trying to mollify. He is they as a balletic player’s
antiseptic glow. He is to contrive and why not two subsets
of culture? It’s high-resin taboo like a harelip on a Grecian
. Why name the chump Tapu, to defend inviolate Eddy
“Tapu” Daemon from the high mediocres. His refrigerator
makes cloudy, crescent blocks tossed in a glass with seltzer
and corn vodka. Tapu will be cured by mania, then excess,
then by eyes pierced in slack folds. Decorum is tossed out.
Why all these disincentives and protocols of control? Out
repeat the Stag of Nate in the addict’s mouth. Not malady,
and certainly not the punctured balloon of drudgery. New
is now no longer a dark, shiny case of homage and dread.
New is the insectile click. New is the cannibal tag. Relive.

Hewoma 2.8

Suck the slick sleek of the genital tract, the pastiche
of hymen, gloss of leathered vulva. Madame Urethra,
I love you with your silky clitoral hood. Eddy’s knees
buckle in, making those dry, sticky inexoreotic-saliva
sounds. Nostalgics convene to share Byzantine erotica.
How can the pejorative clauses of Zero Coke talk racy
mosaics? They can’t. Future resistances will be quaint.
They will moan with argyle hoods. Argyle? No, Snoop
OUS PIMP PENDANT. Madame Urethra in snapback
hat. She’s a lil thug, swag phone. U and E of cloaca. F,
ert me facation. Sex is never safe. Nuthin’ but a thang.
Nuthin’ but the arch of labia. Comp/da mudder jucker.
Stop monotremes—DFW/Franzen, punk care/human.

Duchess 415

Duchess Marie of Public Alley 415 has Eddy glammed
and clamoring for redness: gentil, high-born, manorial,
to bear a coat of arms, an escutcheon, plumed in class
and noblesse. Très Riches Heures du Duc de Eddy. He,
among the royal enablers, he as homo novus or homines
. More titles: vassalage, suzerain, fief. Passer/words.
Testimony of the fiber/optic/chest—scaled-up, porcelain
high-end and toxic elegant. This bourgeois gentilhomme,
this gentelise, this fin’amor, loves Eddy. Teleputerized.
Never stifle the Co/e.d zones of the uN.awaRdEd new.
We, we Provençals hear neologs as a pastiche of castle
life. Aquitaine, Provence and Champagne are Chicago,
New York and Boston. 1099’s first crusade is 2015’s.
Marie of Champagne, is/or Marie of Back Bay. She/be.
