token love poem

Posted to Poetry

love with you is
classified documents scattered across a windy city street
tire marks streaked across signatures and fiscal figures
crushed by the sole of a boot

love with you is
a shamanic trance guiding unsteady feet toward a parallel universe
the spirit leaves the body and is forever lost

love with you is
small sizzling toes on boiling black sand
tripping over each other to get to the next burning step
frantically waiting for shade

love with you is
dead condoms hidden in the folds of flannel sheets
like jellyfish dried up and washed ashore
testaments to past bedroom scenes

love with you is
hemmorrhoids on your rectum
a big bloody surprise
oozing with heated fervor
