Rebecca Parker


as long as it burns on the way down,
she says, i'm okay with all of the fleshy
things you discover and feed me.
the sound of you coming

around the corners and curves
leaves her speechless and soggy;
her skin is thin and wetter than the way
you left her.

every thursday night she flips
through albums and sticky
thumbprints, hoping that maybe.
just maybe

you'll sleep yourself into
the bottle in her hand.
