Openings

The door is unfriendly
My heart knows cancerous things
That open and close.

Valves betray streams
Betray me the way you do so well
My heart is a door.

Blockade the passages
To every opening thing;
Lid every cup.

You open too
Wet with anticipation
But you must be sealed as well.

My heart knows mouths
And forever shuts them
Knowing only ugly things that come out.

Tongues like poison darts
Teeth like a flower's thorn
Spit, vomit, lies.

Forever closing
Forever opening
Forever regretting

Our secret thoughts
With hinges that swing them
From light to dark.
