all i want for Christmas this year is a poem
of you

at ten
and grandma brushed your hair so hard you screamed
and were

scolded for being an adulterous then forced to pay the gas bill

through snow drifts you searched for a glimpse of grandpa only to find
general electrics spoiled milk and attic doors locked

quite Mary Anne told you mother is painting again

not a time for soft kisses
skin raised and hot
waiting for

finger nail trail on back
perfect teeth mold deep in shoulder
waiting for

command and lose of movement
wrist to ankle rope burn
waiting for

head shake apology
waiting for

no more i love you
hair pulls
waiting for

you to fight back
behind closed eyes
waiting for

me to receive
whine and weakness
waiting for

body to move to it
then away
waiting for

soft kisses
