Unhinged

Her razor lips slice open my smile,

widening it

I don’t know if I should

whimper at blood-soaked cavities

or terrorize comic book cities

 

I prefer the taste of pennies to crow

 

A crimson blade,

forked and hissing,

licks a slippery trail down my back

There is a familiar wound

she slides into perfectly

 

We’ve traveled this betrayal before

 

Two slender constrictors

cover an unsuspecting chest,

crushing the cage she keeps me in,

until my heart is on the outside

and vulnerable

 

Beaten into Eden-like submission

 

She is a devastating and beautiful beast

with large moonlit jaws

Unhinged,

open to a catastrophic love,

but too busy howling into others’ skies

 

She swallowed my God damned world whole
