you tell me that you haven't eaten in days, and

i don't know when we started to go missing. i
can't find your lips in all this darkness, your hips
are pressing into mine and drops of blood are on
my tongue, i taste iron and semen and darling, i
whisper, don't you know that we're going to kill
each other. your rotting teeth on my neck, my
hands in your hair, you bite me and i scream,
i'm still s c r e a m i n g.
