Crimson colors wash a dress
Worn to the rhythms of a chest
Containing a fragmented heart built to impress
Red satisfies like a thousand colors
Wears you out by a thousand lovers
Your wrists are draped in pearled hollows
Love you softly with tender low-key
Pick a mood where you unclothe me
Knuckles clenched leave me torn and lonely
Find a gaze where I am youth
Where I bleed emotions—not bulletproof
Seek and ye shall find my truth
Drip with myth your tender lips
Caress my chin, you unclenched fist
Hasten the night, you subtle bitch
Emotions wide and vast like seas
Bermuda Triangles she depletes
A stone for bread in times of need…
My love is lust that borders violence
I have a date with grave impatience
A sacrificial lamb borne on times ancient
A touch for taste her hands desire
A rush for paced her sex satires
A love for haste her heart requires
God, that stubborn gaze of hers
A thousand bruises, a thousand cures!
Her cosmic extravagance while I’m demure…
I approach with nothing left to say
My words engraved, infinite poetry
Your look is fixed—so cruel. Touché
Is there a lyric left to write?
Are you hysteric due to fright?
Are there no lovers to indict?
Casual cruelty is your forte
Jaded courtesans of various shades
Circle your body for days and days
Do you not know that I am human?
That I have hopes and grand delusions?
That I breathe smoke and ache perfusions?
Satans carve your face like razors
Beauty peeled away like vapors
Image-scarred mind without erasure
In a hundred years, when the dust is settled
When my dead body with gossip meddled
Is left a mystery for poets to peddle
The world will want to know you too
They’ll ask for red, I’ll give ’em blue
They’ll ask for me, but who the fuck are you?

Dedicated to “Kitty”–for being yourself; that is, an enticing muse. In other words, fuck you, and I won’t dedicate shit to you–not this poem at least. Not now, not ever.
