[hound]

take
to the sinking
city
of god’s
jack-in-the-box
a stick

from the wand’s
dream

~

[mob vision]

soon
is a baby
studied
by the scholars
of now
who
in their prime
predicted
that jesus
would be
in the scarecrow’s
future
the darkest
bird

~

[traumas]

dear apple
in a paper
sack
there is
no

tornado

~

[possum & moth]

dad is trying to load bullets into a flashlight. his tv show is having trouble sleeping. mom wants us to drink the water while it’s hot. myself I’ve heard horror stories about pissing in the baby pool. I tell my brother having a fever is alot like giving god a blowjob. sister opens the oven for a doll she thought would be taller. we like you but not when you’re lonely.

[women in fiction]

after punching me in the stomach
my brother
would put his hands
behind his back
and ask
the fish
in the bowl
under my shirt
to forgive
little miss
handcuffs
for making
god

~

[ruth]

father
son
I saw them kill
out of hunger
the angel
could prepare
angel

it is wholly birdlike
the thought
that brings oil
to god

the sleeping alien
is not without
its headless
astronaut (the first thing

one sees
hallucinates

~

[stratum]

two brothers come to blows over which sister likes fast food more. a man we want to love is shadowboxing a snowdrift from the parable of touch. blood is a food group. I pray to my hair. call my footwork by name. take my time

with amnesia.

baby facts include being born again in the museum you were carried to.

~

[brainiac]

days before comet

I bite my tongue
this close
to a worm
