my body knows ‬

‪what work must be done‬

‪withers in the kinetic dream ‬

‪of itself — unclenched & twitching‬

‪in the bed — a category of alive ‬

‪a supposed version of fuck‬

‪dappling the sheets‬

‪in runes of skin & water‬

‪weary of what it knows — ‬

‪my body drowns‬

in the ache of itself

without you

i am doing

fine
