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

only
the hunger, i know
will remain

so
i writhe numbless
tonight
again

snowfell my head
eddy slow cigarette
kissing under streetlight
kissing in the dreamhouse
not like anyone ever run
through snow naked
flakes melting on
burning breasts on fire
under lips licks
and i want your soft snow
shower gasps whispers
in my head
