The First Ex

By Makayla Allen

it becomes harder
to hallucinate
into orgasm

the love of the head
only leaves the body
alone to slam
its form into the confines
of nervous

harder I love you
and all
I can do
is muffle
the sounds
of impact
with the walls
of my organs

I remind myself of what I was before this

all I’ve done I can do again

before, you were not a part of this
