i am not these clumsy hands
i am not this scowling face
i am not this hulking stature
i am not these seeping glands

sown my actions won’t erase
i will live within a fracture
train my feet and soil embrace. with,
sacrament my will encase

she caressed me after birth
i pursued her in my youth. her,
perfect love unwinds my folly
through my eyes she sees her strength

i surrender my enamour
freeing you of my intention
gating me with your ascension
grace retains me as your timbre



ooh, baby ooh

you were my only precious love
you taught me how to disappear
within my adolescent whims
crushed by the man
who ripped the veil off
of my pleasure

he, the rapist, made me equal
to his kind
to my kind now

born unfit for woman kind
I see you still behind your shell
I feign a smile and wish you well
my only love right there inside you
slave to time by your own choosing. I
wanted guilt for my abusing
but there was none

and now I give apologies
to anyone who takes the knife
and drives it through me

you were my only precious love
I held you once
and you unraveled
now you’re selling you as chattle
but there was no bell to answer

that was my time
forever after
I still can kiss you
in my dreams

I once observed
a shining sphere
it promised me
to bring you near

and I believed it

cactus flower

plainly dressed, with drawn back hair
a voice like sugared prickly pear
her glasses failing to disguise
a lust that blazes from her eyes

nerdess tina slays the boys
though there’s one that she enjoys
tall and dark, with body frigid
he’s a man who’s always rigid


try she did to roast his wiener
excited by his stark demeanor. though,
such a trait would not allow
her open fields to meet his plow (so, to speak)


this failure she could not accept, and
so she had him as he slept
