Bone Wife

An angular foot
 placed lovingly
 upon my head,
 holding me under
 the cold water.
I’ll die beneath her;
 I could never live
 above her.
Thin as famine,
 she fills me with
 hunger.
Bones eat flesh.
 Sinew devours
 her black hair.
“It’s all so you’ll
 remember me.”
 She says.
“You’ll always remember.”
