“Between Fingers Squeezed”

collisions 

I trace

a race towards

can I get closer to

folding

to break beneath

collapsing

underneath
the sedimented,

snaking

collisions

trace

I trace it

can I get closer to

the arrow

the hook

its through the eye
­
contact

with mountains brought down

folds of earth

close unbroken
primeaval

Many headed limbs bite back

as cannibals we swallow

collisions

I trace it

the race towards

can I get closer to

forming
mermaids purse

quivers,

sucking eggs
repulsed between fingers squeesed

stuck to my tongue

the words come out

I am medusa

caught

Drowning in the remains of sub-marine avalanches

pegsus forming in my blood

my heart still thumps as

I am

squeesed

folding

forming

trace it

I can get closer to

breaking beneath

Repeating nightmares

as I am flying

folding

break beneath

mountains collapsing

underneath

a membrane of cells

sdimented

snaking

collisions

I trace it

the race towards

closer to

the arrow

the hook

its through the eye-contact

mountains brought down

folding sight- it’s penetration

close unbroken

I swallow collision

I can get closer to

 

a forming

sucking eggs

repulsed between fingers squeesed

stuck to my tongue

I am medusa

I will break beneath

the avalanches

Pegsus is in my blood

my heart,

it thumps

folding forming quiver

breaking beneath

I trace it

I can get closer

to break the line,
break the line

Many headed limbs bite back.

Between my fingers
