Kristin Garth


Denmark
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.
