the one (in the font of my starvation

the one where they pull him from the ocean and he’s alive and on his body are bite marks from another person

the one where he wakes up in the hospital and he’s my father and when I ask him what puppy he says there was a puppy with him in the car

the one where the puppy isn’t found but is also not found dead

the one where they want me to have more teeth and I tell them about the puppy thinking they’ll love me here or in a poem about a mouth that’s gone missing forever

the one where they capitalize God for being god
