Week 9- R.A. Matheson

Posted: May 27, 2011 in R.A. Matheson, Week 09


I’m burning this skin 
the insects keep raping 
each other again and again on my skin, 
sprouting their wings like digestive little incidences 
apparent to no one but me and I just hold my breath, 
turning blue, until I can see you again but it doesn’t matter 
because time kills everything and I know someday you’ll 
hate me and it’s always the same and the cycles of 
periods at the end of sentences and statements cannot 
be rejoined all that is left are questioned exclamations 
repeating forever in my bloated burning belly
