Teeth: fEnCeS ArE FoR cOwArDs

your fence makes my bark ah howl louder
makes this caged world that you made me tamed
to believe in, salivating my bloody teeth youth
your mocking bird’s laughter makes my hind legs
stand, and eat you even when you command

don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

While waiting for the train
a hopeless demeanor draped
a dismay so dread
that I begged for atonement.

And relief came to be placed
inside bubbles, my childhood
was reflected in magenta rays.

A horizon that included all of us
It was no longer a blister
a globule of air anymore

But real.
