Acne Vulgaris in Verse

I lance my blue-boil, jab it in with a pricked point
A ruptured pop, like a knuckle bone joint
Hemorrhaging-sterile pus blood, secrete.
A cluster to uproot, white worms excrete.
(And here's a blister the swell more slight:
Excruciating in a word infectious pores ignite.)

  1. I love the sounds - the rhythm of these words. I read it aloud and enjoyed it.
