I wish to oh so lightly/restore your baby face bones and/ hoover back the false fat
which/no doubt glistens beneath your chops/ in rows of golden globulets/ a repenting
of/ zygomatic proportions/you, gentle bewildered cow/ eyeballs untenanted and juicy/ O’
Maiden of the Mouth/your labial encouragingly discomforting/ the rinds of peaked pink
popularity/ is your symmetry now k= 0/ and so on/ such a cramped body pinata-ed with
plastic/I want to burst you/ dismantled in satiny chunks aglow with irrelevance/ but then
I see you with your new babe/ your little sugar daughter/ corrupted philtrum on fire with
love/ and I think/another saint in waiting/ immolation orgastic, exposed/ a martyrdom
most sacrosanct/ slippery with sparkles
