fragments on connection


in this world
i'm looking for a fellow monster
to devour it with me
meal by meal
piece by piece


i want to be so in love
that i don't want to kill you
but i almost do
only to bring you back from the brink
and then i will face the prospect
of losing and having you forever


on permanence of teeth and skin and bones
these truths we call undeniably concrete
but these urban jungle crack around us
and are constantly being rebuilt
