With Love from my Toto*

 

Did they not chook** me with their cacti

and fill me with bilious waste – those

whose scrota should be jaundiced with

stings from wayward bees?

 

Did they not claw me with callous talons

and grip my vexing veins – those

whose hands will remain guests

to rheumatoid rust?

 

Did they not mock my wailings

and cause my teeth to gnash – those

whose nights should witness

harmonies of terrors and bitterness?

 

Did they not defile my thighs

and maul my breasts – those

whose paths will forever

quake with anguish?

 

Did they not tear me apart

and watch my navel suffocate – those

who should be bobittised with blunt scalpels?

 

Some pricks should be snacks for hungry hyenas.
