the motif was a hairy bush. the dude kept pounding this beautiful pale red head woman and touching her bush. he made her touch her bush. she moaned as she stroked it. you like that hairy bush, she said. yeah you like that hairy bush. they never kissed. he really worked her over. her chest was beet red. he moved her like furniture and pumped away. i thought she was so beautiful. i wanted to make her love me and force her not to see any of her peers. she didn’t have movie star looks or model looks. she was somewhat too old for magazine work. she had long thin athletic white legs. the dude was stubby and muscular. look at that bush, he said.
i’ll start soon.
why is half of my face missing?
it’s a bird.
why is there a bird on my face?
i don’t know.
it looks like my face is ripped off. i hate birds. they freak me out.
this is influenced by you but looks nothing like you.
the penicillin and the anti depressant are making me tired and nauseous.
i still have a concussion. i still can’t be around lights.
my chest hair is a spider’s nest.
y holds me down. he chokes me. black spiders flounce on my chest.
y is an untimely figure, and yet so timely.
you’re having a stroke, he said. i’m helping you. i miss having you around. you’re such a good strategist.
what did you do to them, i said.
they found them in the city park.
they know where i am. they know about you.
no one knows about you. you’re obsessed with me.
is it safe?
is it safe?
why is my face gone?
spiders lay eggs in the passage that was my face. two bright flashes block my sight. i give birth to a million spiders. they give me doubt, fear, and curiosity.
