We need a safeword something you can say
so I’ll know when I’m hurting you.
The word should be powerful magical
the word should glow like a neon sunrise.
There should be no margin for misunderstanding
so no plea goes unheard no tear uncleansed.

I don’t wish to harm anyone but I do my share of damage
if you could speak the safeword I could try to hear it.
I’m a hard case I need cues carefully administered shocks
signs burning in the desert fire and thunder on the mountaintop.
But even a word would help
I don’t expect miracles.
