Matches (2018)

Desire will often loom
Like a silly fat carrot;

You do seem boring
But the sex may be good
You do seem boring
But the sex was not bad,

And I am tired often,
My bones, like untempered
Limestone, eyes raw, red
When I look at your photos

Scrolling through self-painted
Landscapes, great and sickly
Searching for relics of those
Gone, and those to follow

Beneath fluorescent moonlight.
