Masochist

Needle me on,
like a Thai tattoo
its permanent pattern
on your skin
     like warm
               smooth
                      cotton

[I’ll want to leave a mark]

& feel your calloused hands
                along my clavicle

                    Grip and leave a mark____

Cryptic is not the term I’d use for
Romantic and it’s not but goddammit
Aren’t you one in the same?

I’m to blame and I know it
I thought __
I thought I lost the wayward dreamer
               but now I don’t think I can
               I think she’s part of who I am
