grasshopper (for dc)

i can snatch the pebble from your hand
but there is no pebble
there are late nights and early mornings
there is pain that waits in places so hard to find that western medicine looks to the east

there is free sex in rented rooms
and free rooms with rented sex
but there is no love for sale

that’s what the note said
the one tied to the end of a rope
the rope that you climbed up
on accident
and on purpose

of all the rooms in this house there is one i’m not ready to enter
i know how many people are there
waiting
for me

but they are not going anywhere
and neither
are we
