Easy.

Your hands used to be safe

where I found my solace
the forgiving world

of your flesh
the creases and nails I’d idly
touch
with soft conversation

When did they fist against me

When did they fill with a coursing hatred
swimming
down from the annals of your mind

to meet me in the mouth
or the cheek
or the
heart

They betrayed more than any words you’ve used
more than any eye contact, kept too long
after another confession

Your hands find they way so easily around mine
and then
so easily around my neck

Should I be surprised

You’re the easiest peson I know.

You lie easy
You fuck easy

and now
you hit easy

Your hands used to be the safety on this gun

and now they’re the knife
in my body.

Easy.
