The Silence of Being Buried – 13

bus – 35mm black and white film

we hunt tigers in limited numbers

drive cars
left of the city
ash and magic
the sound of fabric ripping
as he bends to snatch a butt
still burning

cars drive
right of the city
sex and stench
the atmosphere clotted
by stick deodorant and disposable razor blades
still languishing

my man
broke the window with his knee
and opened the door
and stole all your stuff

my man
watched you sleep

my man
never left
