our bodies have a secret
so now we’re sealed
with a disease. until it’s too late
and the words can not wait inside
anymoreyou remove the dirt under my nails
as easily as you melt my disquiet
and as i run fingers through your hair
i get rid of lice
as easily as i wash your long day away

we’re filthy little animals,
(anti)socially grooming each other,
when no one knows and i hide
with you
in my own bed, where
both you and me give birth and devour
