72 Hour Hold

By tmanzano

I laugh a little when they ask me.

Reminds me of when you tried
to explain it to me in a scream -

somehow got "crazy fuck" out
while your saliva ran down my arms.

You should be impressed,
however, that I payed attention
to your eyebrows when you did that.

Girls are into eyebrows. I never understood
the obsession.

You never really looked directly at me
but just over my shoulder
when I choked you.

You left your smell on me
like a ghost passing through its host
and it’s beautifully haunting.

All I wanted to do is to talk to you -

fall into to your mouth
and live there with your tongue,
maybe put things in your warm parts
but you stopped breathing and went limp
before I could and did anyway.

They keep asking me where you are.

They look at me the way you did
and it makes me laugh a little.

    Chilling in a sleep with one eye open kind of way. I would never spend the night at your place. Scary write. JD
