they've got you

they’ve got you by the breath
by the thirst and hunger
by the genitals’ mad dreams
I will be perfectly happy
to lie to you
I say I wish to speak to the hearer
of the sayer knowing they are intimates
but other
why asks the sayer of hearer
to what is possibly listening
though not speaking
what listens makes no comments
has no grammar
not even an Ah! for aesthetics or wits
meaning for hypocrites
with silver pupils and electric blue
gums
in a tuft of hair there was a drop of golden oil
the mucus of life
regurgitations
in full bloom
under the lime bower
under the smoking explosions of powerful
declarations
the relief of distress waits in line
against the clock
a single moment to translate
page after page of sighs

*

they've got you
