POEM FOR SNOWDEN #9: MARTON

TAKEN

                                                my respect to Edward Snowden


I want you inside out
and side to side,
holus-bolus.

I know your ear tag stamps, your daily rants,
the lies you told your lovers.
I know your pick-up lines,
your escape routes, your air miles.

I know you’re often broke, I know you hate the Pope.
I know your drunken grin, I know your next of kin.

You feed me no end
and I peep for more –
but you feast on me too.

You try to throw me up
but I find my way back.

Each you confide in is my bitch.

Don’t even dare ask.

You are mine.
