POETRY and PREJUDICE

to all of you who recognize themselves in my work:
i'm not a hack. i don't write to please you. there's this one rule here:
if you have had even the slightest influence on my life,
i. will. write. about. you.
deal with it.
happy reading!

not interested

i am not interested in love
i am obsessed with it
it's a wound on my face
i can't stop picking at
eating flecks of flesh
until the holes in my stomach ache

every doctor i visit
says: let the goddamn cut heal
don't touch it with your dirty hands
sickness spreads like news
you're going to kill yourself
i am not hurting, i swear,
i am completely unaffected

see i am not interested
in anything that has to do with love at all
i am consumed by it
like a castaway in the ocean
is a cadaver on the bottom
and i don't care for waves any more
than the waves care for me

unplug your iv, doctors,
on an 11 pm subway bench
in the freezing cold
im warm as a hearth
all out of cigarettes
to smoke out my empty hands
i am not interested in love
it completely burned me out
