Experiment in Limited Materials
I’ve got an arrow in my side
the feathers of an old blue jay
the gamey resolution of sexuality
and that hilarious hysterical soft felt moment
where We People as a Tabulated Group Confront This Shit
that you’ve articulated, well
it fell off into the burned up crust
I knew you were so hesitant about anything
but we both climbed toward that mountain of soft rest
punching each other down toward the peak
I’m dancing around with an old dirty dog and eating
fucking pizza crusts out of the grass
who will crave cutting up fruits for me
and pushing me to sleep under a wet blanket
Mars is pulling me right up out of the ground.
my hands are horrible creatures
soaked in urine
and gnawing on bone
black tights and a long black skirt
and clogs with curly brown hair
a handgun in a bag of potato chips
how long does it get
when you let it down?
you lean your head close to mine and I
the toothy feel of you in my mouth
and the sour taste of winter tomatoes soaked in salt
sewing a thread into my thigh
