“deleterious comradeship” or “she give me the blues”

her words are razor sharp knives
my thin skin and will
long scalpel gashes
that bleed the deep crimson milk
below superficial slits
deep subcutaneous slashes
closer to the marrow
scraping muscle and sinew
she works kosher rock salt & dirthurtful
into the open wounds

my love for her
cigarette burns
tampered into my heartbeats

loving her
a crescent wrench to the temple
a car wreck
forehead flying through windshield
spitting out teeth
barely breathing from the wreckage

this love
the indignity of thrown bricks
through pride
self esteem
suicide at the end of her sentences
& blasting powder everywhere…
