ADVENT DAY ONE: Jacqueline Kari

Losing it/ I am always the Virgin

I always  virgin
even when we switch roles, fuck you
w/ infinite vectors        I still the virgin
Isn’t sexy  ?
I do my whores           I virgin

Virgin chafes mommy suit;
whore and virgin resist mommy
I must eventually don Mommy, don Crone:
This has been decided for me

(Acts like a shed
Actually, amasses)

I am going crazy! I duplicitous when I supposed to
be one flesh with specific use +/or exchange value,
clearly daddy issued

Have you peaked in my box? Beware:
I am both alive and dead: in me I contain
multitudes of virginities           They teem up

They pop each other on the head
I schoolmarm them.

I box their candy ankles
I lipstick their bruises
I powder their no’s

sez we glimpse out the sublimate        
We a muse      me swallow them        
anew hole
