lackadaisical love letter
forwarding this loathsome love note to the sultan of subterfuge:
this neurosis is a continuing nightmare you nurtured,
you taunted my paranoia and my soul you captured.
the one sided love affair with a doppelganger was indeed a clever ruse,
so I thank you (not) for the laconic emotional abuse.
Written in response to Clair Potter's 'Bird-Card for Lingis'
