we are this blood

we are this blood

 

your love has shunned our outlet mall

leaving me still dressed in last summer’s Don Johnsons

unable to eat more than four burritos

in three sittings

 

while you sit inside your own dreams

of a somewhat more exotic JC Pennys

sipping mai tais out of mug shaped training bras

 

trained to destroy me

like grown up chicks

with Robert Plant hair

 

like to do

 

 

 

(from my book Avenge me, Baobob Tree Press)
