Blood Into Ink

I am weighing in

on matters of weight

and consequence

I measure my words

for breadth and depth

pour them forth

in tones of equal measure

passionate and restrained.

he hears a waspish

background buzz

drowned under

the squelching

of my sopping pudenda

as he pounds,

pounds and pounds.

I see

his erroneous prerogative

in his delusional

erogenous

interpretation –

conjuring a mirage,

a wet and shimmering

beacon

beckoning his thirst,

begging for repetitive

slaking.

dry as the Sahara

I burn his retinas

with the unrelenting

glare

of my rejecting stare,

recapitulate

assertations of import

steadfastly comport

myself

above (his) sea level
