1. THE HOLY GRAIL

 

I would never forget the way you walked.
Into my life.
Into me.

The way you inserted yourself.
Beside me.
Behind me.
Between me.
Beneath me under cold sheets
that had us sweating in fear.
Afraid of discovery.
Of discovering.

You did more than explore;
you held expeditions.
And told me you had found the Holy Grail.

But after you took it from my vault,
it filled with my blood.
And it hurt.

And you gained bragging rights.

And I could never forget the way you walked.
Out of my life.
Out of me.

You took the only treasure I had to my name.
And planted a bitter weed
that grew too quickly
in your absence.

I named him Elvis
because I'm his mother.
And I taught him to sing the blues.
