Apportioned severed fowl all twined and trussed.


The Powell high school cigarette behind

the ball field, beside the cemetery,

inside the ash cloud of urn and un-earn.


Cartography of butcher paper stains.

And where the creases have gone juicy soft.


Imagine any dumpster. Imagine

corporeal humors, humid human.


The veterinary linoleum.


The suckling pig. Sucking out the marrow

of life as if hungry for a transplant.


Around the track in gym clothes to render

all our fat and baste it. Make haste with it.


Unchanging holiday flatware, and yet

a variation in the cut or roast.


White meat means friendship, dark meat means love.

Enough heat and nothing bad will survive.
