LONGING

Peppered dynamite dragged across russet brown-

citron peeled pitted with pores

through curtains sliced lengthways

brains share pleasure between fabric rains-

feet sockless

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

spherical lids

glittered

byzantine

and she’s stuck.

Tightwound

comfort squeezed

in earth’s coldest places

exposed pith

her face

glowstick spritz

spilling innards

turgid

e x p an d i n g  space.
