  You could have a big dipper   

Emergency Exit by Jane Ayres

seeing the danger when it’s too late i

wrap myself around the warped edges

your presence your presents

leave fingerprints

knucklebone thick

crisping the ovulation



you made me


this time i walk away

the serrated blade

still warm

saving my scrambled eggs
