Capture spring in my mouth

The swallow comes inevitable

Strips my tongue and aching teeth,

Gnashing, lashing out for more


I’m real

Watch me reel

Watch me unpeel

Sandpaper heart, scratch and scarf

Ever parched ever parched

Drink up the puddles that pool at your feet

Slurp acid, acrid, beautiful, sweet

Shot in my veins, push this beat


I’m real

Watch me reel

Watch me unpeel

Slapping my wings against this screen

The bright’s imbibed, the light’s inside.

Slam my heart against your breast

My tears, my dear: I do my best.
