I laid the girl under the desk and wrapped her thighs around the legs.
I am not infatuated with the idea of a woman
waiting for arsenic to pull her cheeks up over her eyes.
Honestly, I catch

something if I hadn’t come along.
In the early evening she washed her arms with lavender soap, the clocks backward the hands it goes, what are you doing standing the rain with your legs spread, come inside, you’ll catch your death.
Your pants are off. Your pants are

gripping your feet together like polka-dotted hands,
uninitiated bones peeling the scars away from your ankle. You are staring at the ceiling, you’ve counted the stains, the mold,

:56 – a new species of broccoli I find under your tongue. You tell me stop trying to stamp out the fire you tell me you’re only making it worse (back arched, orifices open).
2:39 – the castle seized, flags lowered, whiskeys all around. Good job, boys, you earned it. Smoke speaks to the nipples but cries in an archaic dialect.
6:02 – I couldn’t stand to have you read my thesis, I wrote it in five minutes, I stopped remembering how to bleed. A car stopped inside of me and I lost the keys I can’t move it. Anyway, take it.
14:36 – we stop pinching your arms into segments and lost we become in a desert of saliva. When the sun where does it hide its hands? Behind its eyes?
27:14 – the stars are sleeping in our mouths, they’re cutting away at our tongues with their sawblades, I taste you, it’s cold, there’s ice hanging from my neck like my
59:51 – you I am feeding snow. It melts in your lap, we suck the wetness out of your jeans, mouth like a vacuum it’s only
1:30:42 – if you don’t know how to clean bones from the gutters with your tongue, we’re starring in the wrong movie.

and I said “this is too soon” and you stabbed the back of my
the ruby fork in yours,
and I ripped out your eyes,
I rubbed them against my heels until they smoked and caught your house on fire,
chased me around the room,
around the couch you hid his bones in,

ripped my lips to pieces,
we fed them to the eyes,

“them” meaning you,
you moved my dreams for me and in the morning we found them, we remembered that we hid them behind your snake print heels.
