fatty cloud sunkissed
yellow juice orangutanging
acid tang tongue listed
catalogue kissing nude papers

stomp on sir if dancing
tamp on right on a pen
is who had to die so
i could be so pure

breakfast and broken slow slaw
yolk spread and oxen
heaving with hoes wore
blues in the stead of my room

that paraphernalia peripheral
of decision discarded gloves
pidgeon’s doved dirtied and white
a glass of milk unmothered

staying for breakfast remains
boned dance afterpartied post-whorled
way the world ends she said
i’ll bang if you’ll whimper
