Fetish - Poem by Saberi Roy

the ruby eyes are
lower back smooth as desert
and me hunched like camel

I was drinking your rhymes
I was moonlighting
I was your bed shaped cavern
I was egg in your basket of carrots
I was a box of chocolates

You are my tie
Covering pieces of my skin
like warped snakes
thousand comet tails
drifting in my cerebrum

you sat under my rock
my dreams
dripping mango pulp
and my toes red as lacquer lips

You were throwing wet eyes
You were headphones with wires
You were stretched elastic bands
You were pipes with warm water
You were socks and cigars

you the ice cream vendor
with a ship wrecked body
selling soles for shoes
which I wore
until you pulled out my legs
like sugarcane
and skinned them
the jar broke to spill waters
till I cried.
