The body politic
unknown

You've become a politician.
 1
Appealing to everyone.
 2
Overflowing with exaggeration
 3
constantly smiling
 4
full of gestures and words
 5
tenuously connected to
 6
the truth.
 7
Forgive me if I recite them privately
 8
as cheap consolation.
 9
 
 
All I can trust now are those elements
 10
that cannot be altered,
 11
twisted or deformed
 12
by your tongue.
 13
 
 
The arc of a clenched fist.
 14
rhythms of your carotid pulse.
 15
rush of sweat or
 16
quiver of your bottom lip
 17
wedded to a lie.
 18
involuntary post ejaculatory piss.
