I am unafraid of what's between my jaws

Not the prey or the drink or the squirming words

What I shed is the bravery, what I've lost is hope

Yes, I thought the hunt would save me

The lasting thought of cinematic love

What a god damn lie that was to believe

 

How much alligator blood am I supposed to drink

Before I stop shedding crocodile tears?

Bring it, wounded veins, to the failing lung

Swallowing stones that I may sink

The thread-worn heel of my shoe has cut through my achilles'

Beckoned on by taurine and sugar-sweet amphetamine

Days passed with the hours and eons with the minutes

Arbitrarily...

Bats biting. Blinded and bitter.

To the taste of bubbles in dying drinks.

The swarm beneath the collar. 

I set a match to my funeral suit.

The end of the tunnel, with no light.


Ankle...

There's a temple at the center of the forest north of I-94. Thumbtacks holding up old rolls of fishing line, air pellets spilled inside plywood drawers. And the woods across the...

A Bedouin shawl around the neck of a leper

Tarot cards smudged with lipstick and blood

A gypsy in a glass case spitting fortunes

Electronic gestures made by a machinist's muse

We're...
