Do you be afflicted by the umbrage of dawn's
dark race horses, is your middle a prisoner
of raindrops? Hell certain! i might have said

What may you most likely be speaking about?

like a leftover girder from the Eiffel Tower.
My Indian identify was once Pressure-Per-Square-Inch.
I knew i used to be made from glass yet I didn't
yet recognize what glass was once made up of: sizzling sand
inside me like pee going the entire wrong
directions, most likely into my heart
which I knew was once made from gold foil
glued to dirt . . .
