i've been dreaming
about bones,
ribs poking up
through the ground,
my cat
a white and fleshless
thing that rattles
in his sleep,
haunches bare and clean
as a whisker,
he wretches with
the face of a devil,
he drops me
a sack of love
in the morning,
a stain
on the carpet
as well as the eye,
am i showing
enough backbone now?
i painted
a crescent moon on
my skull of
a hare
so he can gaze
at it even in death,
i don't care much
for the rites but
he looks good
on my bedside table

i close my eyes
to those three
on my wall,
i don't see
i don't speak
i don't hear

(what is this, a fucking cathedral?)
