Gourd Pouring Out Sky

Rituals of mumbling.
Retrieval from numbness.

Word hoard.
A pile of unassembled sentences.

Flaunted flesh.
Ill-defined gods.

Washed and air dried.
Patted like a good dog.

Malice stained.
Paper doll.

Mosquito cloud.
Smokey fire defense.

Pushed.
Pushed too far.

Gods. Made things
for moments like this.
