i cocooned your amorphous heart in
the scardust & tourniquets spun twixt my ribs;
felt it twist there
like a blind hatching snuffling against my breast,
seeking empty nourishment from
the milkweed & vanilla scent masking the pheromones
of my wanton destruction

yesterday lies beneath mythique crescents,
peeled from viscid memoria,
an unwanted keepsake to be pressed
& stowed in the folds of my tissue.
today i steeped the bittersweet in brackish tears,
allowed regret to suffuse
before savouring hindsight as tho my thirst for heartache
could not be quenched

the nights thru which i obsessively rendered your face
in the smear of my infertility
linger like mercy stains
christening the lips of absolution.
you were baptised at the font from which everything
that is broken in me stems
