Open your mouth.
Tell me everything.
Tell me you will be silent.

Hold out your hands.
I have brought you gifts
you never asked for.

i can't see.

You aren't supposed to.
Love is supposed to be blind.
This is supposed to be love.

Keep it open. Wider.
Palms up.
You are the goddess
of ruined temples.

Tell me if it starts to hurt.

what if i can't?

Then don't. Open your mouth.

Tell me if it hurts.
Why aren't you speaking?
Doesn't it hurt

enough?
