i am woman child   
belly of life 
naked with desire   

drunk on pleasure      
throb poetry         
breathe fire            

we bleed soul 
          down 
            here

self harm (originally published in Little Rose Magazine)

score the knife against     the stone,
she said.

i would.  

we are all just star maps,   she said.
playing follow the leader. 

drawing lines from one     rusty wheel
to another, 
trying to atone. 

her thigh became            the stone.
i never knew,
she said,

as aubergine pools drew   tiny crescents
in the leaves.
