Untitled (disappear) – a poem

You slid out of me, ectoplasm,
and I let you. You are
a phantom stranger in
my memories with strong teeth
and living hands that reach
into my head through
dreams that drench me
in ice-cold sweat and I feel
dead when I wake up after
midnight to feel you flee
from the fake bed in my head.
I watch you float through walls,
away, your smile is unfamiliar.

The darkness came.

Your fingers were hexes but so clean
for you to pose my bones to fit around them.
By you, I was emptied
like a dollhouse overturned by a child pretending
to be a hurricane.

The darkness left.

one, two, stop

1.

he says come here and you go.
Consenting
Gutting

2.

Follow him into the forest,
the screaming of the vixen.
he gave me the gun
but I handled the trigger.
there’s water in the blood

3.

march
walk
dance
to his heartbeat

his humidity
skin
bones,
mine
