Excerpts:

 

DUMB, DUMBER, DUMBEST

 (An Ode to Lovers)

dumb

is my ears

amid music

and noise

listening to

the loud words

of your eyes

speaking

vain lingua

to my veins

 

dumber

my body

shivers

moulding

like a dough

to your

buttery winks

in a dark

crowded

night

 

dumbest

bug bites

my areola

my senses

ferment

my hand

clutching

your mutton

like a thirsty

she-wolf

 

woof, woof

I squeal

bluffing

decorum

at bay

sniffing

my paws

on fattened

mutton

 

take me

o’ darlin’

please

don’t call me

baby

berate me

tonight

like you would

do a coquette

 

o’ bone crusher

lead me

to your butcher

break me

from neck to toes

i’m a stubborn bone

cut me deep

in cruel absence

of mercy

 

bend me

till I snap

tilt me

till i’m placid

dissect

my jelly

membranes

 

slay me

o’darlin’

for I be

slaughtered

by your sword

i will heal

by your surgery

 

hound

she-wolf

woof woof

till i’m tame

and when i

meow moew

like a pussy cat

i’m killed

 

…and

there i lay

in defeat

in the

healing warmth

of your

cuddle
