who is it that
you dream of?

is it me
with the knife in your back;
do you see me
the woman with
a wolf jaw
cut slack in a growl?

do i pounce you?

do you defeat me
with the knife
i gave you?


and i wonder the sound
of me when you 
finally put your demon
to rest

--

she is a venus

(her body cut from
the ivory tusk with hips 
like that of a valley, 

breasts shaped as
two moons caught in
her breath)

and i am the trap
she slips into.

i cut her head
into a loop land wear 
her round my neck
like lace.

Oh, Kait... This begs to be read aloud. It's one of those poems that feels like direct eye contact and gritted teeth - no apologies around. I love it.

I really like the ivory tusk line. It feels very uniquely placed.
