Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.


your teeth made the first cut
slicing my belly button into equal halves
your hands peeled back the skin of my stomach
and reached inside
to a concavity in my ribs
that wilted at the pressure of your touch
and when you wrapped yourself around me
you could feel my breath on your stomach
and you hoped i didn’t need to be stitched back together
