Stakes (2006)



from the front:
hands gripped stranglehold
splinters sliding under nails
bloodied with torment and anger
how many years has it been?
mis-guided navigation
and a territory all too known
it can’t be true again
from behind:
cooperation in a plot
with everyone unaware
I feel it separating skin
when they speak it moves around
elusive in removal
but painfully palpable
and in attempts to try again
I make the same mistakes as before
