blood musics

so famously
daughter
she is too young
to smoke

her silence

in the shorthand
of my mouth

remains
born

there is no dark doorknob that ain’t the fist of her brother, no

madwoman
boiling
a deaf
snake

she takes it outside
her made-up song

    “in the shorthand of my mouth” how do keep churning out lines like this? It is enviable, i am envious, which is unhealthy of me, but i just can’t help it. It’s just so good.
