Track Name: Cohesivity
“It’s not a question of faith,”
She says,
“It’s one of indigestion.”
His spine tingles at the thought
And cherub tomatoes
Burst with joy.
After this
She takes her saltlick
And uses it
To disinfect wounds.
Leaning on dusty countertops,
Sundae recipes
Under elbows,
She reassures him
That he’s much too sensitive.
Track Name: She Will Be Here Today
“Savor this”
She whispers while
Treading flavored water.
The real dispute here is that
No one can obscure the facts
Cleverly enough.
He can’t wait four years
No, not even three,
His colon reassures him
She will be here today.
Track Name: Superbird Cometh
Nirvana had some nerve
But I suppose we all do,
What with all the creepy heaps
From the deepest of deeps
And Slovenian comforts
And rotten tangerines,
Who wouldn’t?

Superbird cometh
To make existential pancakes
On the warm weather gales
And ice picks
Stall the game of pricks
So the contagion
Is not released.
