poems 9&10


step into step

one foot put ahead

say! we were in

love for a day

well enough I could

smell your motivation

drip, drip

milky sweat

once, twice, thrice and again

you lifted up my nightdress

another selfish go in the morning

[no permission requested]

I spent five days alone in your bed

a lover i came and a stranger i left


he's a nervous creature

might, at any given point

explode in his place

bones and skin and nerves

a newly carved coffin

a carcass like a polka dancee
