Horror Row

by Kiara Nicole Letcher

All of us dope decedent
American beauty queens.
A bouquet of DD cups.

Nectar between our legs
screams at our throats.
Each yell a pearl
or diamond on a choke
chain around our necks.

We open up slowly like
Venus Fly traps.
Hungry, hateful,
vengeful!
Fertilized by a locomotion
of scream.
