baby blues cannot cure suicide agendas.
all these poets do is wither, wither,
waste - decomposing bones just
enough to trade them in for
words & kill them
cell
       by
cell
        &
conversations bloom between my tongue &
teeth or two choice vertebrae; thoughts
burst like blood vessels,
like self disgust
(i am more catatonic
than i am catastrophic).
nothing kills a man faster than his own head / and pretend we aren't dying every minute

Gosh, I love it, especially the imagery of 
"conversations bloom between my tongue &
teeth or two choice vertebrae".

I really love this; the imagery and diction in the opening lines grabbed me and the poem flowed beautifully from there. I think the formatting in the middle works really well to split the poem up and offers a repose in the pace. In short, profoundly brilliant.
