how can i forge you

how can i forge you still
as i do in this great canvass
where streaks of my own blood
and sweat, the purple paint and
the red drip off the edge and
spill over into my dreams—
i know your struggle to be
mine, lost and undecided…
two outsiders left under the
pouring rain, drenched. by
tomorrow we’d catch cold and
in bed our fever shall rise
until we are sick with one
another, ready to brawl, ready
to fight for what’s at stake!
because what really matters
in our lives is not the empty
wallet in my back pocket
