lovers beside fall (1)


His fingers read my body like Braille
skimming the epidermis
along the fine downy trail

We are on a scarlet sea
his hands in my mouth,
my teeth in his bones,
spitting the marrow out.

It hurts that he cannot see
the curve, the words,
the colors in me

We chew like dogs
on each other’s skin,
hair, and mucus between the gums.

We claw and devour
like rat infested ghetto women,
noisy and messy and full of need
