Half-life

Locked in the trunk I wonder to
myself whether he knows about
negative capability, this scene an
objective correlative, bound, gagged
panting against the oiled carpet
quilted with piss stains and rust,
rapture for my driver
sucking his thumb, cocking his
tired cock through the wheel
until he can pull over, pull out
vodka and rubber gloves, open
wounds, draw life into me, his
X-axis, his Y-chromosome, his
yellow adder’s tongue
zoning my body.
