Confession: I have sat upon a rock
crosslegged with my eyes closed
In opposition: waves that bash
themselves into rocks in the ceaseless
rhythm of broken men whose lovers
have abandoned them
drive their foreheads into walls,
patterns of the insane.
Lesson: say not what you mean but
what you intend to make happen.
Example: don’t say, I love you, or I hate
Say: I would not mind pressing myself into you until there is nothing left of me but for what you reject from your own body.
Say: Sometimes I dream you are a gopher, and I attempt to hammer your peeking head like a circus game.
