Cellophane trousers and corpulent kisses
Right on your bottom my hooligan love
Come to crescendo then meet round the bend
Just so invigorating doing your friend
Beaten and broken and bust and contused
Never beginning and always confused
Newspaper thoughts in your sand-paper mind
O how I wish I could leave you behind
Magnificent dreams and magnificent schemes
Comingling violence and grinning obscene
In desert, in rainbows beside the grey earth
How much does my brain cost?
What is it worth?
While crows pick the eyes from a four year old child
Life is haphazard your essence is wild
Feed me explosions and flowers and beer
Take me out dancing and let me be weird
By growing a subtly stoned grey hipster beard

Corpse flower
Flagrant bloom
Stench of fester
Cadaver charisma
Sets flies buzzing
And maggots oozing
Like treacle or THC through my brain
Am I insane
To love your perfections
To love the idea of your stench
Shit-flower, death-flower, cock flower
Some love roses, some love sunflowers
But your dark mysteries churn my heart
Like an electric shock
Corpse flower
With your deep red inflorescence
You turn stomachs and bring forth vomit
In human beings
Deep from the brain-stem
You draw the flies and beetles
Decay feeders
Coprophiles

Titan arum
Amorphophallus Titanum
Penis of the plant world
So rare, so fleeting bursting bloom
Your name means gigantic misshapen dick
Proof botanists have a sense of humour
And you do kind of look like one
Bunga Bangkai-
Your name sounds rude in Indonesian too
Even deep in the rainforests of Sumatra
Where you lurk
Waiting to get it on with the flies
