the cliche's soliloquy pour vous

the cliche's soliloquy pour vous

A Poem by Amorette Duvannes

I haven't had this clump,
Mangled thorns and running
Reams tear-blue sky
Since I last loved you.

I am a mute since then,
And then, and then,
The tombstone words
Fell out of my mouth

Like ash down a well,
Or a witch and her spell,
The deceived, conceived
The same red way.

I slept on springs, jumping
Roar, belching night,
Because then I could feel,
Could feel you.

That's what they all say,
To pain and to love and to
Hand-in-glove. Make it work,
Unless he's your teacher.

Imagine falling in love with God,
Derobing he who made you you,
Imagine f*****g Death. Imagine
the doornail in your neck.

I'm stopping with the glories,
The head-hurting, new remedies
To thought. Cliches it is.
I'm going to roar the cliches.

When it came down to it,
I loved you, loved me,
Loved we. You you you,
My lovers stew, mouthful on the pew. 

I confused cocaine with kisses,
Cholera with lust,
Ah, I was really quite naive, I,
How it rips, oh my.

I knew I was silly then.
I wore it like a title, 
I was so proud to be so unfulfilled,
It gave me something to aspire to.

I ruined a lot of things, too,
Not least of them myself,
And because I was all I had,
I was all torn. All alone, a torn paper baby.

I couldn't go back to my mother,
It killed to suck my own breast,
And my teacher, the last of my
Shape-shifters, didn't want me.

I could have spoken up,
Bleeted a lamb's apology,
I'm sure you'd have welcomed me into your herd.
I didn't want to be a title. 

I didn't want another drowning
Or flamboyancy
Or language,
I wanted to be correctly fitted,
A mitten pour vous.
