Content warning:

oh wrist bone oh ring shadow
oh thin-lined tattoos
swirling florals cutthroat & envy

all muscle & smooth & tucked elbow
& little cat scratch scars

rind of blade & whistle
a sharpthroated fledgling
​​                                   oh sublime flesh

we measure out time with your sunburns
balloon puff & water vesicles

what does it mean to tongue blistered skin
to feel it burst honey scab in our gums

oh frostbite fingernails oh knucklebones
oh gemstone wilderness

clavicle cavity a little dipper
filled with the broth of our gutstretch wombs
muddied horse flank warm as nectar

oh tank top oh intergalactic grass stain
oh blooded bat teeth & collected trauma

drip of rhinestone reminding us
the world is never different
beginning or end

just ghost & heat
copper taste & gourmet wounds
never deeper than a pinprick

In my calculus class was a man in an iridescent polo and pigeon feathers in his dark, tangled hair.
