graceland

wash me with dappled light
bread and wine and dine me
abstract me from the muck
feather my shoulder blades
pull roses from my lips
lap milk from my lap
suckle honey from my teats
crown my curls with thorns
kneel before my hymen
paint my naked back
brush me with tar
burn my heretic frame
plunge me in ice water
crack your eggs in my basket
hammer and sickle me
ring my egg timer body
spill yolk from my belly

knock me down and call me
by my name
