the word sex
Pushing the patch & blackberry button
soft hinges & muffles. Chewy trick, twist
tongue. A skin canopy. Starting with salt.
Vowel mouthed. Ending with flex & poise. A

Afterwards, air viola. Flakes of post-
combustion. A nicotinenoose. Guilt like
mescal. Husky lovepaste. Sandalwood
meshed with Vang Vieng. One grunt: Lived.
This thing we call word is not enough.
