Steal a Little, and They Throw You in Jail / Steal a Lot, and They Make You King





Slit

"A Hair, they say, divides the False and True" - The Rubaiyat

The divide is always
Slit by razor blade,
Unfused.

I know you swear
You see the split between
My skin and flesh,
The whiteness inside of soap,
The way I sigh and breathe.

I can't believe.

Your lips and mouth are one
In speech,
Around my tongue.
You skin is not a segmented stream,
A clotted ooze,
But coursing flow unbroken,
Interwoven,
One.
