There's a kindness under every gunshot.

A corporal sin
sleeping under the tongue
of every clean cut preacher.

I once saw Eden
in a bowl of fruity pebbles.
Each flake built a vibrant
island on my spoon.
They colored the milk
with a synthetic rainbow.
I swallowed it with the
infinity in my stomach.

Something's growing here,
clawing at my lungs,
breaking ribs,
pushing its way
up my throat.

I swallow hard,
take a breath,
Hold it.
