Deficiency of Our Obverse by Jessica Ni Leacai

 

Willed you, I would, welding you to my armour,
and you would not leave me alone, forsaken,
in a farce, a forest far from freedom found,this,
chastisement, this chaining of my discordant marrow

Had not, all paths, profound in their narrow exits,
led your aim more aptly to virtue, transgression,
in a triumph, a treason that tainted taste, lips,
petrified, lips petulant of thy adulterous desires

Lest you, were mine, mercenary in seizing this varlet,
enlace your bows bound tightly to me, cording,
in an intricate, an intimacy of inflected idealisms, breasts,
entranced, breasts expansive of our unsound structures
