Femme Fatale

____________________________________________________________________________________

You:
sleeping         dreaming of rum lollipops
bacardi candy canes

Her:
lying awake
eyelids peeled
conjuring       thoughtless figures
of 5 faced       schizophrenic men.

Men    under the bed
awaken her    shrill shouts
night terrors              settling feet on earthen surface.

One face retracting
unearthing figment             skullcaps.

Paralized slumber    enthralling
swords            lingerie
tainted women.

Biopsy needles          run
spine to scalp,

Black   felt tip markers
outlining        lobotomy rugged
cut lines.

Drills placing             holes
frontal bone   penetrated;
eye sockets     rattled.
