Vixen (clock)

Watching the ceiling fan wobble
(Tick)
Listening to her snore
(Tock)
Feeling her icy fingers run up my sides
(Tick)
Smelling of death’s breath
(Tock)
Tracing the small veins that run down her back
(Tick)
Uncovering her scars
(Tock)
Sharing each other’s imperfections
(Tick)
Searching for missing puzzle pieces
(Tock)
Watching her hide behind tattoos
(Tick)
Wanting to be nowhere else but here with the broken clock
(Tock)
Fitting in with everything else that is broken
(Tick)
Knowing this is the place I belong.
(Tock)
