009: my mouth kisses the water drain [13 May 2003|03:07pm]

My mouth kisses the water drain,
back facing the white textured ceiling
water falling out of the showerhead

It feels like I haven’t eaten in weeks
the water gliding down my strips of knotted hair
Into my empty eyes
however I am always eating
with sight and taste,
with the sense of touch,
turn the temperature up
the water is getting cold

but I haven’t eaten in weeks
and I’m starving for anything
turn the temperature up
I can see my absent stare in the reflection of the metal water drain
as the scolding water trails down my back
rolling over my cheeks
and into my eyes.
