A collection of short poems

Swallow the fluids that bleed
from native orifices

Swallow Rezeta and Teddy
Let the air bruise your throat

Swallow his trembling fingers
Her spice and palm

Swallow his authority
Her bleached hair

Swallow his piano and pick
Her pen and paper

Swallow stray pain
and stray pleasure

Swallow your heart
His heart, her heart

Swallow the end of your road
Surrender to the fixed

Pull the length of poison
Out of virgin lungs

Burnish the final product
Stick on eyes and plastic lips

Become what you are
What he was, what she was.
