tidal wave

Father spoke softly
she couldn't breathe when he spoke
she knew love through words

hearts and thighs

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hall & Oates

wo o here she comes
watch out boy she'll chew you up
she's a maneater

some decisions

they knew it was fun
linking their body parts up
but she would get more

I'm yours

tower of warm hair
anticipating pleasure
under my control

empty cage

I know you and them
you wear the human heart wrong
blank chest cavity

school days

I don't think he knew
about the birds and the bees
but he kissed me hard

hot breath

I can feel the air
and know that it's there for me
gulping and gasping

the beginning of the end

everything is fine
I tell myself all the time
my body can't talk

truth teller

I knew she told lies
the tales about me were true
so her tongue grew fur

the incident in gym class

she cried in gym class
when he told her she was slow
her ass was worth it

support system

stringy strands of legs
not enough to support her
collapse and a chair


a spark and a shock
goosebumps and pain and purple
cling to me with warmth
