i should build a levee

silver is becoming
attractive to my whims.
i imagine nuzzling razors
tenderly against my skin..
i imagine the Nile that
crawls from my wrist
to be emptied in a red
sea as i open my fist.
reveal an atlas of vain
or a hopeless compass,
for i idly miss pain
as i misjudge justice.
little is fairer beyond
that metal reflection
when life depends on
this mental repression.
