Bonny thunderhead o’ seams
all up moment caught thirst yr left fist
some bundle some
faggy clavicle dragged just a inch
closer to yr face. Drink you.

Y’know I can eat this all day said once
you have the patience of a saint
and said else
you know you’re a taker
& sure y’kno I’ll take a beating,
I could eat this all day. I’m round
down here for a scrap,
am patient am waitin
taste the sweat
in your hand against my teeth.
Bloodsome mess made
palm crease sweat&red
river lonely canyon
yr hand open my empty tongue
Pointer callous worn groove
in your thumb blood ya stowed on my lip
ya mirror you
keep chewin’ on yrs help me
cuff up my sleeves.
Ya bite. Said I should meet him. The man you left me for.
Tooth echo & lips gainst bicep
Well? What are you going to do about it?
Here, clouds let past, I’ll getta see ya real soon.
N’ ya favor a haymaker but yr knuckles
taste so hard done by so go for it ’n bite my tongue.
denimpup openmouth pocket slinger spit
finger all over yr teeth no
Boneskin hand cracked
like the stone you kissed every morning out the door
on your way to school,
could eat this for god who knows
but listen sun
is discing down so tell me again
I’m yr baby.
When my knees hit the dirt it’ll never be
cuz I gave up.
