Whiplash

In the end, this lesson    
wonít be about your hair  
or your smile, or the way  
you fuck like you mean it †  
††  
Iím re-writing humanity †  
hanging up my belt & hat †  
because in my own way †  
I will feed you your fear. †  
† †
Thatís why youíre here † †
isnít it †  
† †
because curiosity † †
drags out your dead, †  
lays them in my yard †  
† †
takes photographs † †
youíll stash † †
in book sleeves †  
next to naked pictures †  
& dog-eared pages † †
where you document †  
your meaningless love. †
† †
Iíll never understand the pull †  
of your masochistic panties, †  
why you bind my chest †  
in spineless metaphors †  
when Iím trying to write †  
your unfixed end †  
† †
but you remain †  
an old wolf eating lamb †  
impossible to understand †  
beyond tearing out your lungs, †  
laying bloody wings upon your back †  
if only to symbolize release. †  
† †
Your legs lay crossed on the rug; †  
you remind me of all the things †  
I never say. †  
† †
Iím too full †  
to fucking speak.
