mosquitoes swole off my blood, a grand prix of expansion.
what they drink is on flag, minnowing iron, my blood afflicted
family w/ growing distance to their will
in testament. be mold in the miles between us before I am called
for something other than mercy. before I call to hear anvils,
where who you love doesn’t love
your new skin. ask the love of my blood in what cell is affiliation? mine
still look like me. got teeth from our mamas. like him, his mama raised me
& now we inherit raising them, though she met the other plane. & I hefty
talk about this dimming gold batch of shit secrets in sentences.
where is my modern mead, something of biblical import to massage
the insides, my suede lungs blackening from blunts I share
w/ my lover who burned me in bed while passing a roach in the dark.
our fingers met, but the lit end dropped to my chest. a brand
he shares, & maybe I shouldn’t smoke in bed or maybe passing
lit ends post bomb head is a liability no insurance will comp.
oh kin of hemoglobin, buzz home to me. I call what leaves me back
to gather iron my anemia lacks.
