Contusions

I’ve got bruises
                      of all diverse shades

& I think I’ve been wringing my hands
                   too much
             wringing the bones to crack

Just to relieve the pressure

my lips have been bitten
                    too much and my tongue
             rolls all things hidden
                               into  plain   view

               if you’re listening
               if you pay attention
               It’s worth mentioning

This preoccupation
               & these addictions
       with you
