for nancy

Standard

you will not suck the life out of me
you will not suck the life out of me
you will not suck the life out of me

she repeats three times, like Dorothy
with those ruby slippers
& there is a witch in her drama too
sometimes she thinks it’s her
when his poison enters the blood
the way some spider venom
freezes prey for easier eating
but no amount of magical thinking
can work as well as her two feet
bare or not

walking away
