i get that this is karma
and payback
and retribution

and this is what i get

but maybe it's enough now
[please]
veins
dig and
twist choking
arteries through
your skin craving a salvation they will

never find because deceit tastes like cheap
metal and your
pulse tides
in

and
out with
the tantrums
of your lungs and
salt stutters in the creases of your lids

as you swallow your irises black and
orange and tell
yourself
that

it
doesn't
matter what
tomorrow brings
when it stalls with dreams and decays with time
Hippopotamus
bones clunk and drag, drool dis-
ease and ungrace, fold.
Pain
This is decent, I suppose.

i think i know
how my mother felt
when she was
smiling
with hands
that washed dishes
in saltwater;

i think i can understand
the special brand
of emptiness
that is borne of
a carefree smile
while you
choke;

i always
see
all their faces
in my
torn fingerprints.
you are not important
but i love them all

She
tiptoed
in on soft
kitten feet, so
soft I did not hear them at first. Soft tread

smokes your arteries. Mirrors shock your heart
to rhythm. We
feed her gin
and milk,
snug

her
in down,
drown ourselves
in a pocket
ocean. You buoy above your feather

prison but a moment, blink twice, (she) lick(s)
your lips, placate
a cough, and
snug back
in.
We are only fools once.
And she has the prettiest claws, too.
