DOOMSDAY SONG

Laura Voivodeship

I love you 

neurotic 

like quicksand I love 

you like we are 

alive 

til I love

you like answers

to any

of my questions

I love you

like atoms I love

you like language

you pin me 

in place like

a god

in a box 

and I love

you like telltale

dilations

and truth is the light

is immune and I 

love

you out I 

love you

sick and still 

I love you 

bleeding
