Deep Red Well
How inopportune it is
that i can only draw my ecstatic pleasure from
the deep red well of your screaming, writhing pain;
and now that each piece of what you once were lies twisted and torn, ripped and raw,
strewn about the poverty-wracked apartment where once resided your random soul,
i celebrate in the afterglow of my magnificent work,
and ready myself for a pleasant nap,
first carefully wiping the jagged blade on the sodden sunken couch,
before lying down in the mystic swelling dawn's first pink rays
creeping through the holes in the curtain
and making curious and fascinating animal shapes on the floor...
