The melt

it is that time of year again
where the frigid cosmetic
melts off of the diseased face of society
revealing the sordid souvenirs
that the winter tried to hide
now you can see
the karkov vodka bottles
dog shit
and menthol cigarettes butts
trickling down
the septic sidewalks
wretched roadways
and abscessed avenues
plaguing the sewers
and subterranean sapiens
with its careless
and cursed existence
