Which Poison Do You Drink

Which Poison do You drink?…………By Peter Onyancha 

Which poison do you drink?
When you open your mouth
Your fangs!
Each word is toxic
It leaves a septic wound
Which poison do you take?

When I see you 
The shaken body aches
I coil and shiver 
From your venom to my fever 
Which poison is it?

Raise your arm with brim anger
Bruise me with rancor and scald me 
The surgeon and blade 
Will piece and stitch
Degree after degree
But your unmetered spittle
Is mortal my Husband!

Which poison do you drink!?
