Love as a horror story –

A sharp knife, and other tools
Sedate the Pretty
Cut and slice, fairly even all round, not a bad job, template ready
Breast-meat skin stretched to fit Tarzan’s chest
Leg skin, sewn, meeting your freckled arm skin
New snake skin socks for a man’s thick legs
A silver back, your new silver back, the Gorilla and his Chimp
Your face stays, to look at you as you look at me as you once were
Deep cut skin for the deep hurt in the loving of us.
