not having known

not having known

not having known such position, such pursuit,
an unilluminated hallway, a fire escape,
recalling when caught as though still as shut
            outcast off my shape
into my knife's polemic like nothing's wrong
scraped up for reserved minutes that won't take
outside sterile consequence into its dry tongue
            exhausted for ache:
make me want to, make me want my in
of memorized routines turned loose for him, for this
new retreat, hollow ring to my worst sin's
            fading emphasis.
