THE VEINS OF THIS UNIVERSE HAVE BEEN STRIPPED

[BARE NOW BLEED THEMSELVES INTO THE MILKY WAY]

you were a restless
lover now left to rest
an eternal slumber until
September's end
when new love may come to hunt
or at least
lust of the flesh
dressed
in the skin of new love
after it has taken a blade
pressed firmly to my forehead
and torn away
my identity

no matter how many
handfuls of water I drink
a successful hunt you have had
and I am some native warrior
left here to rot;
you will wear my teeth
around your neck

I was an eternal
lover now left for eternity
a restless slumber until
some new beginning
