Oh, oh my belly is churning.

—Dope.

 

The snake inside pretending

not to be a reptile.

 

Abiding. I am to the rules,

broken,

breaking my insides.

 

You are afraid aren’t you?

 

If I could hear I’d answer,

yes…

 

But it’s a lie. Only one evil

manipulator at a time.

Fuck!

 

Here he is desperately weak.

Indeed!

Bravado build me a bully.

 

You can hear the laughter

is torment. True horror

inside the crackled bits of him.

 

I am—pink chiffon. Captured in

innocent breeze. Follow her

to the secret.

 

Her love is real.

Won’t hurt you.

 

Even if he bites three times.

We can count backward steps,

black patent-leather shoes,

shine-click-click.

 

Wake-up tomorrow perfect.

 

See the daytime illusion on Venus

to the left. Always teasing, teasing.

 

The only thing that makes her

cry.
