Thoughts on Love at the Annual WereHyena Fight Poetry Workshop in Carmichael, CA

Let me put you down as your favorite pick me up
Let me hang around when you’re sure you’ve had enough
Tell me to bring it when I have hurt you yet again
Tell me I don’t mean it when I scream you’re not a man
Kiss me on my nipples each time your gut is punched
Promise you can take it when I tie you down with lust
Let me break your heart every day until you’re dead
or just remove yourself with a bullet from my head
I said
Let me roam freely while you wait for me to show up
Let me back in even if I’ve broken all your best stuff
Let me break your heart baby ’til your last breath
If you ain’t scared of lady death’s cavernous depths
