Play Dead Too Long And You Might
Accidentally Wind Up Dead

If you run liquid into a wound it will eventually
become a waterfall. A lip’s cracked
skin can be as safe as an army trench &
weeping willows have the most bittersweet
sap. Hurt is the finest yeast so let us bake
this sad sad bread. The pond is green & still
with bugs. When things don’t move they get
weird. The mosquitos are buzzing in the air
& they’re coming for the ones with blood.
