but i’m a martyr for this,
I crave
repercussion;

even self-abnegation
needs an audience
or else it’s just masochism
without the gentle recompense touch
of her sadist
after she laid her.

all cathedrals use pain as payment
and my crucifixion,
while self inflicted,
is just as copper,
just as baneful.

and my bloodletters will wash the splashes
from my feet,
stitch my gashes
into
temples.

“Lilith”
