foolish


the shame of untamed children
stains on the carpet
unruly heart, please stop

impatience running high
too quick to speak
strings taut across my chest
my cheeks swell taste sweet

your cat smile
removed, amused, denying
three nights live in your breath
and I’m dying

too long


Taking out my earrings now
Welts rise up from their weight
Taking off my heels now
Easing my blisters and back pains

Thought I’d be with you now
Was waiting for some bait
Something to grab onto
To save my face

Rubbing off my makeup now
Into my sheets
My pillows between my legs
Between my teeth
