One Through Four

 

there are numbered ways to love

  1. addiction has no flavor
    lobotomize the heart. useless
    ventricles must be discarded.

  2. the feral horse
    stomping messages
    into raw dust.

  3. solitary evenings
    masturbating in
    unseemly places…

    (my room is my heart-
    I have never been tidy)

  4. as the wolf
    gnaws off its leg
    in frenzied fear
