essence drained
i miss the skinfringe numbness
whiskey used to bring with
comfortflask warmth
coursing though my
arthritic heart
easing stilted seizured
staccatotaut beats
no whispering down phones
like a song's razorscut
singing will you still hold
me tonight? mutterwise slideways
shut the vault to amber Gold
calling colliding with
desire untamed unquenched
fire staved off with
mocktails empty abscess

the hunger, i know
will remain

i writhe numbless
