cannibals will eat more flesh

poetical sounds

in a time like rain and eras when
i washed your face, erred your body,
mistakenly, with unadored wounds
flung accidentally from this
inebriated mouth— my madness
dismissed as nothing more than
insecurity unhinged to scorn you
to a distance…. have i succeeded
at inching you along, have i pushed
you out to the ends of the world,
goaded you to erase me from memory?
cannibals will eat more flesh, i’m sure,
and guilt shall always consume me
