Indifference

How am I to comprehend you
in a Sunday suit, your starched pinstripe
feigning virtue while you sweat buckets
in a†pair of patent leather sin. †  
I cannot pretend what it is you need †  
under this silky black magnitude † †
of ruffled disappointment. † †
Requirements for tip toeing around †  
what the bedroom represents has †  
buried me in guilt. † †
† †
There is never enough † †
courage to slip into irreverent † †
contours, your dusty fingertips grazing † †
mangled, canyon depressions and † †
craggy pink scars that †  
yawn in outright boredom. † †
The memory of what has been † †
cut away, forms deep pockets bent on †  
spoiling the fruit and tossing out † †
any love that remains. †  
You were once unburdened †  
by my catastrophe and I was unsoiled † †
by chemical castration.
