{ain’t more}

poems recent and former:

[pink verse (ii)]

there’s a kid on a bike with a machete and she’s run your brother up a tree. your brother is taking off his clothes and the kid has a toe she treats like a loose tooth.

you watch as your mother tattoos the parts of her body she doesn’t like.

the cross on her ankle
an insomniac’s
plus sign.

I say to the bird of the chipped brain
that faith
is fascination’s

bruise…

the food is gone that was seen by prayer

~

[theatrics]

play, image, your joke on heaven.

infancy, you destroyer
of nuance

use
the whole
animal.

~

[landfall]

rag doll
our talisman
of verbal
abuse

and crystal

ball
the whale’s
brain

/ fucker

saw pigs in chewing gum

~

[flocks]

blank yard signs

radios

of the independently
poor

their babies
slow
in getting

up

doll, prayer mat, microwave

/ more time
