Pat Bateman didn’t trust a bitch. My bard
American, my bible psychotic,
my prophet takes no slaves. His bed discards
its contents to a grave. Sluts are toxic.
Mine serves my psychosis, symbiosis —
her virgin sister triazolam. Gift
she opens for me like the rest, Christmas.
My bondage Barbie works the graveyard shift.
She uses bruises, 12 year plea. It’s life,
in cage, a cube, for me. Then video truth:
drugs drinks, her rapes with glee. Now, mother, wife,
a grade school volunteer despite film proof.
I end, a psycho, all alone the same.
A snitch/slave/wife bests master at his game.
