What I Would Have Done

I would have run away with you

crippled

and crimed myself.

I would have pimped my breasts

into crystal

or sand

which ever you would have preferred.

I waited

all night long

after the car's backseat took me

bending me

scraping me

into an unleashed animal on the floor.

The rain

could have washed me clean of my desire

but you liked me better that way.

LALALALA

night

day

night again

find me

see me

here I am

get over here

you know what I want.

Scream

with my fingertips

on your face.

These bags

of baggage

holding me still

would have gone with you.

On the road

you know where I like to do it

back at the scene of the crime.

Kitchen

backdoor

floor.

Twisted French kisses

on you

from me.

Take me with you when you go

let me hide inside you

and take me aside when you need me.

When you want it.

it took awhile with you I remember

but we weren't pressed for time.

I dressed myself up in pearls

and heels

crooked lips

of waiting

wanting

needing.

Night

day

night

party-

you know where I want to go.

Here

there.

I'll let my skin seep into you

listing

listening

I've waited

and still your keeping me waiting.

Night

day

three days gone.

You know what I need?

I'm a child

tasting

the fruits of my labor

for the first time

and I want more.

There are thousands of things that I want to do to you on this journey.

Outside

inside.

Day

night

day.

We traveled

like my hands traveled against your face

hands

neck

valleys and pools

of everything that I wanted.

A nation

a home that I was proud of.

Flesh

that felt like my own

and myself

comfortable within it.

Who are we?

Who cares.

Sunrise

sunset.

Let me drip from you

back there

out there.

Night

day

night.

I've waited

and still your keeping me waiting.
