It's rather ordinary.
The carpeting is plain...
Short,
Abrasive.
It's like sandpaper...
Nothing to scrape yourself back and forth over;
But it's not as blatant as your rickety whorehouse special.
Laying flat out over it
Is no pain.
And, though it's bound to leave impressions in your skin,
Small imprints vanish quickly.
Skin is resilient,
Stubborn.
The floor will be fine.

carpet burns
fire in the skin
watch the ceiling
thinking of England

secretary of nylon back
whoring her day away
what is missing?
happiness

calm
vomit in a bucket
fists in the face of lust
to completion

that's how your poem made me feel
