luhmehnt 4 th deth uv...

I touched my fingertips
To your cigarette ash skin;
Drifted
On concrete sidewalks like
Mud puddles never left alone
Dry leaves in the gutters
Streetlamp, curb
Sitting on the edge of your lap at
Midnight- bony fingers, skeleton
Thighs speak to me
Your ribs a cold steel
Walkway that I tiptoed
On, afraid to create a xylophone rhythm in
You distorted amplifier
Lungs.
 
I looked back
On my last cigarette butt
Tires, twigs, and brass ,
Ran my nails over the nail
That popped your tire,
Over your henna tattoo,
Over and over
And
Always pricking my fingers
On your spruce-needle
Eyelashes,
Electrode railroad spike,
Your progress
Seems like walking
Backwards.
 
I stopped mowing my
Lawn grew vegetables instead but even that
Felt like raping.
Your bark was too thick to
Let me seep into you
Via osmosis, but
Thin enough
To let the axes
In.
