and crusted sleeplessness
in the morning. She is lying there
being violated by a man
with a long beard - a Rasputin
envious of the death his worship
has obtained. He would rather
revive her in Ray-gun Gothic atmosphere
than sleep normal hours with her.
I would pump coffee
extra strong through dead veins.
At least then
when I suckled at her extremities
they would be warm and wake me
from this horrific nightmare.
