I have anger like a highly polished gem
one that has been buffed with a specialty cloth.
the facets shine like brilliantine
and are warm to the touch.
Brilliantine is a word my head has always admired.
Is brilliantine a stone or a trade name?
Whichever. It’s fucking inspired.
I have haste like a cruise line without brakes
don’t know from whence it came or where it’s stored
Carnival Cruise plows through soil and steel
roar that buzzes and rips the air
Is brilliantine a stone or a trade name,
or the glow in Eddie Cochran’s hair?
