In the Night

Rubbing the thick overnight’s kohl
from over
                & under
my bloodshot eyes
Don’t even ask me why…

clawing
for       the      Advil
I need time to think
   
                                 [space to br e at he]

Trying to recall the event:
                 [Good luck]

Corset loops and straps so many
Fucking
Straps

Un                 —                 hooked.

                  Let’s take this to bed

Let’s take this to the head^
You preferred your scotch &
the room billowed up with smoke

Within those plumes a familiar face
One I entreat to stay
Just a little longer
Just keep your eyes on me

Keep
your
eyes
on
me
