insured against all loss
unknown

except this tilting of meaning
 1
from center fulcrum
 2
as the heart is plugged
 3
unplugged splayed
 4
thrashed & fucked
 5
in three different dialects:
 6
you knock on her door
 7
at two in the morning
 8
her best friend answers
 9
holding a pit-bull
 10
with a mouth
 11
like a chainsaw
 12
by a very short
 13
leash.
 14
nothing!
 15
there's nothing here for you!
 16
she shouts
 17
over and over
 18
pointing the cordless phone at you
 19
like a bayonet.
