my teeth are weak and ash,
i see myself in the tongue of the sea,
irony grinds itself into my
mouth;
salt water peppers my lips

we speak in a patois that has me reeling
and moonshine lines the collarbone of the world,
dips behind the horizon,
snakes into the sunlight and kisses the flowers awake.
timid love is often mistaken for indifference.
