    To Love a Selfish Man/A Lesson In Vengeance

    You asked for my hand

    And I held yours in mine

     

    Asked for a kiss

    And I gave two

     

    Lips

    Turned to mouth

    And you swallowed the sound

     

    My hand turned to wrist

    And I relaxed at your grip

     

    Went blind when you asked for my eyes

    Limp when my legs caved in

     

    You did not have to ask for my knees

    I kneeled at the sight of you

     

    Your lap an alter

    Your teeth a stack of scripture

     

    Loving you meant staying pious

    Meant never leaving your feet

    Meant taking back all of my body

    Only to better serve you

     

    Meant only one way out of this empty church

     

    Meant a fantasy of eating your skin

    Draining your blood into wine glass

     

    Sleeping sound with your body

    Nailed to the space above my bed

     

    And sometimes,

    I pray to it

     

    Remember all the testimonies you made of me

    Laugh at their echo.
