title. Eyes Like Teeth

name. Albertine Clarke

Why do you look at me 

With your eyes like teeth

I gasp for relief, my chest heaves

What do you see 

 

When you look at me 

With your unbidden hunger

You rip me asunder

What do you see 

 

Why do you look at me 

I am nothing; I am empty

I want to fall apart beneath 

you

Fill me - I am free
