is all it takes to fall out of love
or realise you've fucking died

i'm gonna be beautiful;
bathe in leeches
spit under the solstice moon
kill my father and mother
and brother and sister

i'm gonna be a talker:
smash my teeth and my fists on the stone
lap melted silver like a cat
eat a rare songbird a day

everything i want
i can see and touch
right now
i cradle my dreams like neonatal rats
small and hairless, yet to grow mean
and with tails i can tie together
for a glorious full-grown
precious darling
