as she saw fit

she mounted my head above her fireplace

she ran her fingers across my skin

and removed it with the razor blade she keeps in her mouth

stretched it across the plywood beams and let it season in the sun before making lampshades

bottled my blood in homespun glass with a sprig of mint and a hint of clove

she gnawed the meat with delicate bites and loving licks down bare musculature

cracked my bones open and sucked the marrow with a satisfied sigh

soaked my organs in brine and let them dry on the same window she later hung them from as chimes

and i just smiled in contentment as the essence of who i was became the essence of what she wanted

no more constraints

no agonizing questions

i told her i was hers to use and abuse as she saw fit

and she ran with it
