Afterwards, we値l all remember having seen it coming


I知 an atomic bomb of a woman  
living in a hand grenade dress  
a chest charged with bullets  
trip wires for eyelashes
dressing my catastrophic dead  

I want my remains
to be wheeled through London  
stopping traffic without care
angry drivers shouting obscenities  
forgetting in the end  
we all ride out with no address

and I feel as if  
I知 marching through Leningrad  
tattooing Chernobyl on my thigh  
howling through the rubble  
of my ground-zero heart  

because I知 war-torn, love  

I speak to destroy  

drowning in secrets and suicide  
watching bodies pile up
year-upon-year

some nights you値l find me
a metal pin between my teeth
wanting to taste
exactly what its like
to exist without fear
