148 (who?)
the woman i want to fuck the most
is an abstract concept;
hordes of leeches latch onto my sleeves as
i undress her only
to find a hole and/or bomb after un-
screwing her chest; and i trip
again because she is in my shadow,
slipping, disappearing, reappearing;
as i peel off its black paint, it
sticks to my nails;

not even a woman but a faceless trader
opening a box full of roaches into
my prying face;
as i step into brighter and brighter,
skin-peeling bright light, my shadow
slips through my toes, my brain
slowly processes thoughts
into sticky dimness;
i spin myself
into a cocoon trying to
corner it; meanwhile

she scatters into tiny particles because
she asks to be grasped in an equator-wide
embrace but i'm blind
in a blanket of light, picking
leeches and roaches;

what i want to dissolve into the most
twists back into a spider
at a certain point; there has to be
the least possible
of sediment -

the pinnacle of human
honesty beyond which one slips
back into a liar's skin.

mine hangs in bloody strands,
the hawk's cloak, the avenger's banner;
sometimes i close my eyes to blink and then in the stillness
the truth i lust after

skitters through the canopy.
as we journey deeper into my irresistible stupidity slash naivety combination

This feels like one of those poems that will stick with me forever.
At the very least, I will definitely be coming back to read again as long as you have it posted here.
Amazing work.
