Peppered dynamite dragged across russet brown-
citron peeled pitted with pores
through curtains sliced lengthways
brains share pleasure between fabric rains-
gooseflesh grounded on floorboards
touch eyes of partial blue
the same blue as confusion
she chews on her hair
lungs squeezed orange juice
ballooned when she moves-
eyes pressed shut
and she’s stuck.
in earth’s coldest places
e x p an d i n g space.
