Look Like Virgin

April 26, 2012

It wasn’t from a dream,

but I woke up crying

one day after my birthday,

how am I supposed to feel?

It falls outta me–just,

like rumbling water letting out

a voice you can’t make talk.

Running like a child before he’s put to sleep.

I’m breathing top soil

rooted in dust

pale as rib bones

buried beneath

the fuck I look like.

A virgin?
