monday thoughts

this will be me in the morning
ignorant of mistakes made by body
in the void swallowed by her eyes

that’s what spaghetti hair looks like
except that’s not angel hair
is too thick
not the right consistency
to feel nice in my mouth

i’m not talking about a penis
or a racist
or a racist rapist

i swear

it reminds me of bleeding
soon i will start bleeding
i will become this woman
physical puzzle of parts
heart tongue toe
will weigh me down
that place
on my back
where man puts hand
in gentle sway of dance

or sudden rough embrace

will ache

so much
