Content warning:


one day when I was small I crawled inside a grandfather paradox, 

curled up in the tock-tick-tock,

became a chrononaut, born in the deep

dark of a time cave. I would be there for all time,

forever exploring, a time spelunker

 

every second I become something new, with

a clock for a heart and the clocked tick-tock

of a watch for blood in my veins. no beginning or end

in the deep dark of the hour, no longer than one and no shorter than none

every second I discover something new, with

a clock for my breath and the clocked tick-tock

of a watch for air in my lungs. there are no words to speak 

in the deep dark of the hour, no longer than one and no shorter than none

Sometimes among the fish and crabs, we trawl squid and octopus, or little sharks, all added to the pots. Sometimes it’s a fish person, a thing we cut free and do not talk of, pretend we never saw. Today, it is part of a god.
no one wants to understand / why you smell like acid gut and carrion
Grandmother, the wolf’s voice was / a lullaby, the night sky...
