O metal wing lengthen these
arms how flight reaches these
teeth brilliant & brown
stained at last milken & green the long long
fib – in yr crenellated wrist
indicate yr yogurt pride envelope the youthful canal
dig deepen errant hand
for a clean womb
decorate the cape laidutilitarian handsome brand
breaking legs – breaking legs
a small toothed fibula
crane past a stars
a Munchhausen pride deeply laid angler teeth
a lost claw
for my mouth
