Fade To Black

They cut away but we know,
we know what happens,
we know if it’s meant to be
bedroom antics
or
flames crawling over a pile of bodies,
we know
they aren’t allowed to show us
so it’s ours to show ourselves,
we know it’s missing for a reason –
perhaps it’s just too realistic –
we know the hardest things to see,
the things that make muscles squirm,
are always the most realistic.
