Bathroom Window View
by Jaime R. Nieves

bath water sits in the softness of stench
where relief lives married to fear
Trickling
Past the curve of stricken cheeks
all that remains are traces on the tiles
and tiny fingerpaint on a window pane
somewhere, some place, more pain
that no one will remember
.
Life just blends it all in
like undies that sag around her hips
and I can taste it with my eyes
Sorry-
Where have I been all my life
amongst the swirling masses of flesh
I smile, they leave, and I finally woke
we lived in our refridgerators
and we're all amateur pornographers
Trickling
under our feet, everywhere
keep my heart warm
though the door breaks my nose
Oh, wut the fuck's the point anyway?
Oh, wut the fuck's the point anyway?
