The war in their heads
I didn’t find her breaking point until
I was on top of her - we were having sex -
my nose started bleeding hard. It was
dripping down her naked body and
I was just licking it off her skin, he said.
That’s a lot of blood, he said she said.
In his car in the dark I went wide eyed. I was on acid, he said.
Stop! That’s too much blood, he said she said.
That was the only thing that ever broke her. She’s wild, he said.
You mean you both drink too much, I should have said.
There’s a whole mess of men in this country
who need a war to go to
for the war in their heads.
