have u seen my body? u cracked eggs against the sycamore tree
asked me to pick out the shells with my teeth. take the A train at 10pm, 
bus across the bridge
+ into the river. the water is always ice cold. crazy how we used to get
lost here, drown in city lights. u chase me down the pavement
peanut brittle between ur teeth stoop under the wonton stall
breaking ur back contorting on the doorstep. here low-life fairytales come
to fruition, knife worked nine inches in
pulled out six, exorcism. midwives delivering red ink + roaches baby crawling out
of my throat. tear my throat apart to see it hit the pavement
spider carcasses piled at the church door to be dumped into tsap seui
such a long night.
