a warning to all future lovers

flicker

by lexi

watch carefully

the blood on my teeth, the flood and the heat

dark coffee stains and unworn jewelry

i swear i am all these things

listen closely

i am the tick of the clock the eye of a hawk

the time you watched the rain extinguish the last flicker of a flame in your soul

are you paying attention?

i am the breath of achilles scorching rubber

and flesh red cherries

salt water taffy, and the time you told me

i wasn’t pretty

read that part again

because before you get too involved

i think you should know these things

and i don’t think i’ll ever mention it again so

please consider this your only warning

watch carefully
