Blood Memory

from by Tamara Sandor



Blood Memory

Back in the back of my lair bludgeoning doves,
Pain’s got to go somewhere, and it does

Romanticomic situations in apartments in New York
I leave my body for a second and the day’s turned into dark
I need to get some walls around it, push it through my arteries

If there’s another way, I’ll do it, it came to me readymade
I don’t know why it works, where I learned it, or how to make it pay
Feeling overflows the form it knows and the
Chord cuts both ways

I’m gonna work it out, I told my brother so
We found it in my mouth, a lump of solid gold
That was one hour and a half ago and it’s turned
Tinny and cold tinny and cold tinny and cold

But the skin enfolding my face and tits and feet and fingers fights
The same fight’s been fought for four eons ‘gainst equilibrium,
I must abide
I must get on the right side of it
