a broadway movie scene-
i tell her she's such a tease – that i want to finally ravage her and oh – she just gives me this innocent russet stare, wasting all this time crying for frustration while i could be crying to pleasure. iodine tears falling onto the bedsheets a mistress used to smother her pawn with because he couldn't tell black from white. painting white fingernails black: mascara mixed with saltwater. there are screams as it enters through cuts and boils beneath skin, peeling away at all the impure. paint me the color of a broken midnight sky.
