Kristin Garth

after Traumnovelle by Arthur Schnitzler
and Eyes Wide Shut by Stanley Kubrick
You wander into Denmark uninvited
enticed by naked sounds, my gated grounds,
aphrodisiac someone recited
inside a piano bar, staccato sounds
of penetration with a mask. If asked,
one uttered word, Denmark, becomes a key,
to verboten, velvet cloaked sodomy, back-
bent whores in antique table top orgies,
a blinded man’s prophecy, his proffer
towards a rotten state made masquerade
where even a doctor is considered pauper
trespasser in a billionaire’s gangbang charade.
I am secretly maintained, manicured.
You can violate me with a word.
