BITCH

Sit! Good girl. Stay! Good Girl. Speak! I said Speak! Speak goddammit, when I say speak you speak, ya hear me. God damn dog.

A BITTERSWEET LOVE BALLAD
a strangers fangs   a lover’s flesh. Panting           like a dog   the room spins.  Skin,   a transparent pink. I SHOULD HAVE WARNED YOU,  My blood, your lips
I SHOULD HAVE WARNED YOU, the kiss of death,
I SHOULD HAVE WARNED YOU, I whispered as the last drop of cyanide
dripped
from
my
flesh
