Civilizational fanatics

A bag of peas

and coriander seeds

scattered

in no discernible pattern

cause for alarm

my nipples agree

condensation from

hairy armpits

is too big a burden

for civilizational fanatics

but you carry the weight

of the universe

between your butt cheeks

it’s a pity your angelic

tweets do not

account for cherry trees

blossoming in the midst

of july. Come autumn

the weird kind of apples

tweedle their

juicy addendums

and I read

to make sense of

Salvador’s world

I learn to make

myself agreeable

a world is innocent

without a child

learning to use

a hunting knife

to carve out

his father’s intestines

and bitter

’cause you refuse

to eat it.
