Give Me Back My Shirt

You stole my shirt again
The one with stains
Beneath my armpits

You lied and said 
The shirt somehow fell 
Into your suitcase

A dark black shadow 
That hurled itself off a cliff
And landed inside your
Sad blonde soul

And when you sleep alone at night
In the naked stretch of your wine-soaked skin

Do you smell my harsh manly aroma
In the pillow of your theft?

Do you wet yourself in the taste of 
The baby felons we might make?

Do you imagine yourself wearing 
My body
Upon the sharp thrusts of my 
Contempt
And
Love?

For a liar, a thief, a fetishist for 
Fabric
That revives memories 
Of lust long faded

You stole my shirt again
The one  that has faint traces
Of your drool, in the way you 
Drip yourself upon me 
In the hot slumber of your 
Babbling incoherent dreams

Give me back my shirt
It was a present from my sister
Who rarely bought me anything
Except for a blue cotton candy 
Vivid blue
Like your icy sullen eyes 
In the childhood 
Of my lonely
Indelible 
Lament

    I did very much enjoy reading your poem. It has a sense of immediacy and reality we rarely see here, and it creates for the reader a kind of mental movie open to personal, intimate interpretation. Good work!
