"You just wait. I'll sin till I blow up!"

"My dragonfly,/my black-eyed fire, the knives in the kitchen are singing/for blood, but we are the crossroads, my little outlaw,/and this is the map of my heart, the landscape/after cruelty which is, of course, a garden, which is/a tenderness, which is a room, a lover saying Hold me/tight, it’s getting cold. We have not touched the stars,/nor are we forgiven, which brings us back/to the hero’s shoulders and the gentleness that comes,/not from the absence of violence, but despite/the abundance of it." (excerpt from Richard Siken's "Snow and Dirty Rain")
