we are all trapped together we are all piled together

just a pile of limbs and faces and legs and fingers and you may cry out please, please, please release me please let me breathe

my darling

this place was never made for someone like you

the shutters drawn

the cool porch breeze

i feel them crawling under me

mice and crickets in my bed

pink pillowcases pilling

underneath my fevered head

as i sweat underneath

i still love you

for your shotgun face

and for your flashlight eyes

green and yellow sick sweet and mellow

swells in the brown carpet
