a poor soul's

confusion


mistaking

your lacework

for diamonds

your clinging

for attraction

your feeding

for affection


writhing to death

in your snarl


mistaking

your fullness

for her failure

to keep you


while you disrobe

for bed to

sleep and dream

full like a king

juice still dripping

down your chin

fat gut protruding


never considering

as you snore

that your repast

was once

called something


she had a name
