Waiting for Jesus to Rapture Her Away

I descend upon 45
dancing on the tips of open scissors
laughing at the obvious censure
of my intimacy
I caught the countless bouquets
purposely hurled at me
to comply with the world
of well-wishers
who knew absolutely
nothing of a desperation
smeared
can’t cry in public
too ugly
like public executions
a head beneath a giant razor
a neck bound by rough rope
one’s death should be private
as one’s humiliation a sacred
ritual
I wandered into this dead dream
and stayed
into incinerated landscape
filled with zombie populations
dragging themselves though
limping, crawling
I know too well the feeling
of murdered flesh
with purpose they have infested
the sacred walls of my earth
my childhood portrait
hung on the walls of my flesh
still
little girl lost in the maze
of a world too big
left under the stairwell
waiting for Jesus to rapture
her away.
