Swallow

Swallow

A Poem by Corset

Hormones

when there is no feed
feed them blood
blood,
blood snatched from your lips
because there is "just" not enough
horror
in our day.
Chinese food is sick
deliciously robust with disease
radiation swims
babies born like squid
appetites of madmen
maybe he flies it in
from whence does your tuna come?
Bovines fret hormones into cheese,
more than worried about my needs.
Note to self: Eat less sesame Chicken
and buy your lips some water
become a pocket poet
does it concern you what they do?
Metal ticks in my ear
on the left
some call it war,
some call it love,
some call it genocide
are we what we eat?
Go ahead and swallow.
There is an ill wind
coming,
drink it in.

my sister was just saying that there is a good reason why we don't see any stray cats in the neighborhood anymore? lol/ and right after I finished off my "Moo Goo Gai Pan" chicken mushroom stir fry. And didn't that Aitkens diet guy die young, and didn't Tony Little's hair come out in clumps/ . So I started that "new years liver cleanse" of apple cider vinegar-honey-lemon' concoction that I struggled to swallow all of the first week of January until I said, f**k it. This belly I will just pray away like I do all the things I can't concur with my own improvised human depravity. Good question about tuna. This large sweet flesh fish from the tribe Thunnini is found in all the oceans of the world and has fed generations for centuries. But you mean perhaps that little round can of something that sits on the back of our pantry until the eat-by-date expires but you eat it anyway and it passes the eat test. No one was sickened. No one person witnesses the process of their slaughter, and no human died in this process. As for this poem:

what an interesting progression from caution to calamity / nice.....dana
