SPILLING

 

after he collapses on top of me
& rolls off
something pours out of me
like a life force but it’s
a replenishable resource
I’m dying
but it’s a good death
I want to lie here in
my casket
a leg is still hooked around his
for one second
I don’t care about anything
I’m cheating age
I’m aging in reverse
I am Benjamin Button
everyone wants to know if
I’ve been bathing
in virgin blood
that’s grotesque!
it’s just seed
I am the evil stepmother
I am the tyrannical queen
I’m in my lab
filling apples with poison
I’d recommend against fucking
with me
I am the Last Temptation
find me in a chatroom near you
night falls
stars gleam
like boy’s teeth
I’m being shaken into
a murderous rage
I hear people are out there in
the streets
they’re waiting for me
there’s something about living
in this country
that drives you to a frenzy
only curable by yelling
at the opposition
only curable by spilling
blood or seed
