Love Letter to Ashes

light my skin
matchhead sulfur sting
wring your hands
around
delicate throat
look at edgewise glares
i’m undressing in your reflection
you’re looking through my thighs
see what’s behind that girl
black and bony monster
bare breasts to suck or shred
she doesn’t believe in boogeymen
but she believes in you
flitting down her spine with kerosene spikes
open wounds absorb the flame
and you close your eyes
while i burn
