Like Sick Horses

I want to press my mouth on yours.

I want to wear a dress the color of dead fleas.

I want you to put down your guns.


I have checked the room

and it is safe.

I have checked my friends

and they are full of blood.

I have convinced your hands to

drop the guns, to wait trembling.


The birds and falling ice in my dreams

will break my body.  Don’t worry for me,

don’t go.
