15

i
was a dream
                      you
should not have
awakened
a memory
                 you
should not have
tested

your dark eyes on mine see
less
and the blue-tipped claw
that now
runs
down your spine
carves another name
                               his
into your flesh

and yet
              all
you can say is
yes
yes
yes

    I dug this too. But I’m simple. If it’s about sex and power and dominance and somebody’s getting slapped behind the stage and it’s well written I’ll digs it.
