~XI. flesh & blood~

~soon after the turn of the century~
~Quodlibet won the Marija Cerjak award~
~for avant-garde/experimental writing~

~The Hundred Bites~

~a man should stand up~
~& piss outside~
~whenever possible~
~enjoy private moments~
~away from societal restraints~
~claim what is his naturally~
~a root rite of birth~
~do it by himself~
~out of sight of others~
~or in the company of brothers~
~whom share his stand~
~ladies talking in the kitchen~
~steam rising in the cold outside~

~XI. flesh & blood~

~how this man rapes me~
~she breathes~
~not against my will & yet so~
~he knows what I feel~
~which binds me of need~
~what frail stick am I~
~tied to the earth & rapt of feather~
~wings against his tongue to fly~
~eyes closed in a purple longing~
~that he might bruise my skin somehow~
~whip this flesh as spirit done~
~these blood~
~these lips offering at once~
~& denying commitment
~spirit blessed & flesh be damned~
