3:28am
when i saw the caul of
my brain
entangled and held hostage
by another man
for he disliked the way
my hair brushed
against the tide of his finger
and the eternal damage that
little act caused
to the haughty air around his hand

3:29am
my brain burst
into pieces of scavenge
that jackanapes scream about
in their mimes and horrid dreams
ugly with piles of blood,
placenta,
ovary,
and all things woman
dusted away,
blown till the sight of the vultures
by the very same wind
that the touch of my hair had corrupted

3:30am
i died
from the pain of an unlamented,
unnoticed offence
the man’s fingers Danced
the wind blew
my brain burst

IT BURST
I DIED
HIS FINGERS LIVED
AND WROTE ME
A NEAT OBITUARY IN A
WHITE NEWSPAPER SOMEWHERElove story 2017
