Heave and surrender your will.
With a swift movement,
yank down velvet curtains:
observe as the corpse crumples.
Bend soup spoons:
watch the metal curl backwards.
Pluck flowers before they bloom:
see them wrinkle.

Put them in a velvet vase,
constructed of curtains.
Stir.
Eat with your soup spoons,
as your skin creases.

You have a special way of writing, that makes the reader read your peom more than once to completely understand it. You're a really good poet, keep it up and someday you'll be a great one.
