From Stranger Music

LETTER

How you murdered your family

means nothing to me

as your mouth moves across my body

 

And I know your dreams

of crumbling cities and galloping horses

of the sun coming too close

and the night never ending

 

but these mean nothing to me

beside your body

 

I know that outside a war is raging

that you issue orders

that babies are smothered and generals beheaded

 

but blood means nothing to me

it does not disturb your flesh

 

tasting blood on your tongue

does not shock me

as my arms grow into you hair

 

Do not think I do not understand

what happens

after the troops have been massacred

and the harlots put to the sword

 

And I write this only to rob you

that when one mourning my head

hangs dripping with the other generals

from your house gate.

 

that all this was anticipated

and so you will know that it meant nothing to me
