Portrait of a Lover

Portrait of a Lover as a Window

Greasy, cold and thin
Always exposing himself
Never holding a memory for long

Portrait of a Lover as a Stapler

Forever putting together wrong things
Feeding me disinformation
So I won't separate

Portrait of a Lover as a Hedgehog

Prickful of wonder 
or wonderful prick
I don't know


Still licking my wounds
