daughter – seed


          hello permafrost jubilee // muck in my gut // babysugar // all cramps and kitten tongue and gooseflesh and Houdini wine // you stillborn catcall // you hiss //


     muck-in-my-gut // ghost-white and beloved // give me a disregard for neighbors and sirens // give me a glass of old and pretty and expensive // give me buttery hair and a nosebleed // give me crawlspace in your warm undress //


      hello gut-muck // hailbine // pull-down // cursed cuscuta // diwali garland // hello spring



Note from the author:
daughter – seed is a poem I wrote consisting of numerous lines taken from previously-withdrawn and previously-rejected pieces.”
