Selected Poem(s)

Bones, of Animal Tooth


To George Dutra

{mooblock=face the dawn}

sober is an angry word
drunk is a four letter scrabble answer
worth points several,
when you talk, like a seductive robot
I flinch, a rabbit at carrot stalk
whispering secrets
my teeth like marble to acid
beer to pinky Zelda heart cheek
talking, and we are awake on anti-
anti-anxiety pills melting chalky sweet
on left half of upper tongue
details motionless against insufflated
less full,
more for th
e taking
