when i say

the mammalian distinctions in you spiral around me
(choking my dignity and playing chicken with luck)
and your sarcasm whispers stuff like bile
and balloons go
-pop-
behind your throat
and i cant even tell you what i mean

when i say

everyone left you when you were young
so they could come back for more
pumpkin sized dreams that ache like our migraine-heated tile
end of october more like the beginning of april in the old place

and now i feel like just hanging there
i ponder it all and forget to pray
the caterpillars near our tonsils evaporate in the wild on contact
so apparently they’ll go away soon
