A violent spread,
anemic ancestors
paralytic leprosy.

Cathartic vowels of separation.

How I miss the wounds of our love,
those inseparable moments of unhappiness.

With dirt divided,
I claim an infinity
of lice and harpies;
of cockatoos and dragons,
of fear of loneliness.

And in this fear of loneliness,
I press in against your skin
and puncture every point of pain.

Until loneliness is what I have become.
