with the last lines borrowed from Kaveh Akbar
Tension begins here:
My bleed/my break
the line one curves over slopes
the crevice cascading two-pulicitous over an edge
the stream of over-consciousness squelched in bliss
Return with me now,
wind humming honey
a touch filled with ache
when silence lingers in our throats

Imagine that, 80s Goth live.
I got a ticket...

There was one who taught me all, as she taught the witch

me the goth, you the witch, fairy tale story.
I became your student and learned all I could,
we toured Euro...
