you
those eyes
burning like
moons on fire, like
matchstick fingers on
callused ground. accidents
we asked for, the slender hands
we took and pulled, the tin levers
they constructed for destruction. our
hearts were throbbing egos, and you knew just
the words to swell them to explosion. you
with those cyanide eyes, snowflakes come
to mind and i find myself on
a foreign track, dripping mouth
useless in defense from
your cloudy face and
expert choice of
where to speak
and to
touch.
