scene ache

in Ohio, a father mows the lawn of a friend and swallows what he thinks is a bug and that night

as he wonders if the bug will ever be finished
kissing
its eggs

his children tell him
to drink
something hot, his children

who compare
rug burns
and wait

for their invisible toys
to believe
all at once
in god
