BOOT AND KNIFE

I feel the effects of your words

worse than the pills you administer

you break the pain barrier into thirds

One third pain

one third shame

one third visual gains

of lore and restorical mainline

opiate addictive flames

frying my mind

taking me places

without control

where the knife

comes out of pocket

and suredly opens

the clasp to

you and your

timed aggressive notions

that you will

open my door

again with a

boot.
