sleepless

all night my world flickers
like a bad electrical circuit
     some part of me
        raw and exposed

failure to connect
failure to detach

your voice can be soft
        as my thighs
or hollow and hard
      as a cheap plywood door

now it’s dawn
and the birds are screaming
           murder
