When Nakedness Stares Back

... just one more soft syllable that nuances the spectrum
of polarity
there are no opposites
and you come back to it
the lilt is titillating and obscene
a crying verse of nicotine
to catch your breath and do a spin
around unstable poles that have you dizzying
the tender raw creature trembles
under your foot
you've just learnt to crush it
to blame it for the gush
the pain the filth the blood
the obliterating bliss
and each night the return
is reverberating
in your chest
under your ribs
where the creature resides
the beast you can't adjourn
that breathes your air and hears your thoughts
because it has your mouth and speaks with it
and you sleep and listen
and are thankful...
