Inedible

I can’t grow a new heart but I can let you know what you’ve done to me
the way a snake gulps up its prey.

my milk has drowned armies

my tongue is the hungry fire beneath joan of arc’s feet

I don’t live for credit in the straight world I live for

the look in your eyes

before I decide what to do with you

you questioned my soft lips and now,

now they will have ruined your hard bones

you cannot devour me

woman is the savage of the world

repeat this three times to yourself so I don’t have to

waste my time doing it for you.

Am I too tough to chew through? Good.
