september 1/81 (giora)

i am not looking
for your pity
but my energy
is dangerously low
and i should really
rest in the sun
for week or two

my fingers deep
into your muscles
under your ribs
the living history
of your pain and abuse
at least in the
act of sex
you take take take
or give give give
to take take take
but now with you
there is nothing to take
except your agony
and later
your resentment
