“Stronger Than Your Answer”

“Stronger Than Your Answer”

Bacteria swarms to a new shore

while ants take a bath in the kitchen

and the warm glow of a bed of nails

and the faint putrescence

of a warm glove

veined by icy hands.

I missed the train

to turned hips away from the cougar fire

a rug moistening at the specter

beneath the mantle, cold candles

the roast of a disowned son

the icicle bouquet queen,

coated in liquid silver minutes

faded phone calls.
