Dirty Mattress in the Basement

Remember that game
we used to play?

Neck belt floor chain frolicking

into albino blindness baby
food spoon feeding baby
bird receiving trust blackmail
fake father figure forcing

my muscles atrophied
shivering trembling skeletal with

sores weeping

You'd say, "So cute!"
and call me
Your Pet while

ignoring every whimpered plea
over old VCR loop newscasts
broadcasting
my old face

to myself
long forgotten

You always won.
