"in love with Medusa"


by your serpentine eyes

your snake-like brain

smells divine

a stiffness

crackles through my bones

I shrug it off

smiling wide

you hiss and glare

as though you hate me

lucky you

it does not faze me

you simply cannot harm or maim me

since I am halfway dead already

my rotting heart

pines and longs

to beat for you,

my dearest, sweet reptilian lady.
