Necessary explanations

See, she says,

my liquid pool eyes belong to you

to him my shame

the waterfall of my hair, the swamps of my skin

the ponds of my sweat, the spring of my belly

the river of my voice, the storm of my breath

to you they all go.

he likes my shame.


it never rests

the little worm inside

it eats my heat and weaves sorrow threads

to wrap my soul in.

more than a coccoon

it feels like a shroud.


Oh, leave the little light on for me

and turn off the sun

for it burns my pain and it hurts my teeth

and I have nothing to bite with

and nothing to cry for
