What Kind of Love Leaves a Cunt-scar? by Chris Murray

What Kind of Love Leaves a Cunt-scar ?

the bee-sting

I arise to close
the heavy window
against cold fog

and her woods are littered
with little death

of sucked out corpses
and dessicate(d) fruit flies

and I feel the scar

snaking

ridged

against

and spider scatters into
her charnel house
fast-as-light

and her webs are
an ocean of exoskeletons
