I curse you & you come back
for more, your proud lip trembling.
You deny nothing.
There are words that should never be said &
I say them one by one because they are delicious.
Every stunned look has its echo
in the pit of my stomach. It terrifies me
how much of you I have taken in
& how much more I still need.
Every dog knows by instinct what
to ingest to make itself sick.
I love you beyond reason.
If only you would pay me back in my own coin.
