God

God

is a many-headed lioness
I am clamped in a set of jaws
she tosses her head
bone-piercing where teeth
penetrate
I do not die

she shakes

there is no truth
but this

love
is gone

solace indiscrete

I act in love
not with love
somewhere
it escaped

I make myself
limp
to be the
shaken one

the best
shakee
one can
be

bunny
lives

another 
day

-Celia Quinn
