pronouncements of love should be taken with a pinch of salt
they all say:
‘I’ve been told
I’m really good at it’
well, honey,
of course

when a man
has his dick
in your mouth
he’ll say anything

any pronouncements
of love
should be taken
with a pinch of salt

stars failed to shine tonight

dead fox at the side of the road
a dozen red roses rejected by a girl
uniforms for the uniformed
sharp teeth ready to bite
stars failed to shine tonight

shipwrecked on her shore
I write about her
sometimes
she’s a devil –
other times an angel
but always a lover
always a fighter

mysterious
she’s a chameleon
tapping into my desires
she’s temptation appearing
different each time

the red head
the brunette
the blonde
differing skin tones

I should forget her

but can’t

she’s a siren
luring me to her coast

to shipwreck me
on her shore

i.k.i.w.b.i.h.t.u.t.f.e.w.i.t.w

dopamine
and
noradrenal
receptors
equal sin
breaths
on
breaths
skin
on
skin
enticed,
reduced,
slave,
cling
