Love  

Copyright Lee Ann Mortensen 2002

 

 

 

Murderous and shiny,
love comes at me from behind
twirling small knives that cut
into my back and skull so sweetly
I ask for more,
even though I know my aorta will
eventually be split,
my thorax will fill,
and I will drown again
in my own greedy fluids.
