Un-nerved by Rena Garrett

We moved skin on skin

to the sound of Radiohead


I called you creep

slid down your body

and hummed the lyrics

to your labia


Licked the cream

from your insides out

entered you from all sides

head heart hips

turned you over

and took you again with my hand


Until your burned bones

turned to liquid and

molded to my side


I rolled over

and gave you my back
