chew

come in
sit down
grab a fork
an empty plate
plenty of food
for thought
though the conversation
will be work
it’s not
so
tough
chew with your mouth
closed
keep your arms
off the table
with the safety on
please

a right, a triangular impossibility
no.
wrong or right
bumping my head
against the mirror
triangular shards
shower me
and temper my flame
cigarette in rain water
and I find that sweet
harmony to remember
that third, that fifth
simply to settle us down
before we light again
and again

D

the moon
is half bitten
and gutter bound
drooling dust
into your eyes
reached for the star
you got the horn
called to your god
you got the salt
waved to your dog
you got the bowl
talked to your ma
you got your soul
