Scream (or when I think of you)

By Heather Lee Rogers

I will teach you

how to make me scream

I will teach you

how to bend me, pull me

through my safety

to the nasty danger

past my borders of control...

I think of you

on the subway ledge

(I want you everywhere)

the cold fluorescent

pulses savage ugly

the beat I feel

between my legs

when I think of you

beating in a wild rude way

I try to drink

the pulsing light

look full into the glare

and think of you

and when I think of you

I want to scream

from there, from there, from there

deep in my wilderness

where I am waiting for you.
