Sometimes You’ve Got A Smile Like A Scar

Setty

sometimes you’ve got a smile like a scar

that’s how all my well-rehearsed isometrics of cool

eat shit_

 

—-

 

a hint of death

in your warm, placid limbs

your womb

of sweet bee eggs

_ can you excuse my lack of awareness?

 

 

and those backbones

such trouble and loss

they have suffered

yet

still accept

me

as lover

so silently

so compassionately
