Prelude to Intimacy

By Royce

5 A few steps from your apartment door, bathed

in lucid porch light amber, I had an epiphany,

a precision of vision not unlike the clarity of

the man on the gallows right as the spring door

pops open and the rope begins to choke.

authenticity beginning in wisdom but ending

in a grunt, twisting until lust is asphyxiated 

and chests no longer bump into breaths.

3 Fumbling for your keys, like grandma looking

for her puzzle pieces, part of me just wants to

leave and avoid regiments of redundancy.

2 Now just meat abandoned by meat,

communicated by outbursts of apathy.

1 Clothing sheared, only quarks remain.
