2 Poems Written for Kane in 1990

Other Woman
I refused to give you back rubs
Because she was in massage school
And when you chained me to your bed
I knew that you’d chained her there before
The same way
She thought that I was dangerous
But she was just a secretary
I did not care what she thought
As long as she remained
Afraid of me
And I did not care what you said
I would never sleep with her now
The three of us could never be together
Now that you’ve told her
All of my secrets

Suicide
You blamed me for your cigarette habit
I said But I always smoked
Before you knew me
In the end you told me that
You wanted to kill yourself
Because of me
I reminded you that
You’d always wanted to kill yourself
Before you met me
