Railways

I got on a train.
I climbed to the top row and
Tried to find a place

To sleep. At last found
I a spot, on the advice
Of a mother and

Daughter. Quickly as
The train started to chug, I
Spilled from my seat to

The floor. This was not
A passenger train, but for
Livestock and cattle.

For years I had tried
To stand off from the herd, and
With them I would die.

German Angels

Walking, a young man
Told me about his strange quest
For the lost German

Angels. I replied
In the keine Deutsche I
Knew, and then was I

Met by his maiden
Sister, who wanted to thank
Me for my kindness

And also to bear
My children. I made plans to
See her the next day,

Conscious that I had
Forgotten to wear my ring.
When I came to the

Dinner, the maiden
And her sister were there, and both
Had young daughters. They

Now were vying with
Me to see for which I would
Become their new Dad.

My Dream

In my dreams we are

Together. We don’t concern

Ourselves with others’

Opinion of what

We do. My husband and your

Boyfriend don’t exist

In my dreams. We fly,

Exhilarated, bodies

Mingled, you and I.

All I ask is that

You just come with me, and we

Try it. Can we try?

Corrupter

You do not give your
Sex, I take it. It is now
As it always was

Your struggle is like
Sweetness on my lips, Honey
In my throat. Give me.

Your tragedy, my
Symphony, your misery
My fantasy, while

I draw breath, it is
Ripped from your throat. You are mine
Forever, even

If you could kill my
Body, still would I persist;
I live inside you.
