Ghost

by wechslerh66

Duane Michals

you were Morrison
wasting the dawn
with me
when you could have been with
someone else

dreaming of a way out of
Kingstown

mesmerized by some
weird astrology

the way you were once
mesmerized by
me

you’re not enough for me
Reckless Johnny

you were never enough
for me

I’m a desperation angel

I’m a woman of
endless night

& I’m worth more than you
know

you will miss the way
my belly curls
the way my body curves
the way I moan when I toss and turn
in bed

you will always hear me breathing down
your basement door

I’m the ghost of pussy
you will never have
