Please don’t debase yourself for us (thank you to my followers, who have only shown me the utmost support)

Thank you to everyone who has watched a video

of my readings and didn’t point out

that it would be a whole lot more interesting

if I just showed a little more skin

 

Even though I was terrified

that the people here

would react to my poetry the way

I’ve been treated in real life

 

I opened my legs all over

these private bad thoughts

and offered them up

in a whirlwind of sex and drugs

and none of you called me a whore

or told me to shut up

 

this is a world

where people want me to have

only what I want

  1. You always capture my heart in your fist and puncture it with voodoo needles… my deepest feelings go out to you.
