Eat My Secrets

By | 1 April 2010

Once we have carried out
our parts of the bargain

my secrets will be
safe, in the dark

vault of your body.
You alone understand

how I've ached
for the slow caress

of digestion, craved
to be held within

another's cells.
You will pack me away

in plastic bags, against
the coming months,

against your own
peculiar hunger.

You will relish me.
What could be sweeter?

I want to be known.
This way

you can taste me
all the way to the bone.
