when life gives you super-absorbent polymers

it doesn’t matter
how many times
you punch a pillow.
it always takes
the shock. i

wish i wish i was

like a punnet
of milky feathers

like a luminous
orange mouldable jelly

like the rubber
tiles under swings
at the playground

like things exhibited
at science fairs

like a crash
test dummy i

wish i wish i wish

it didn’t matter
how many times
you slice a lemon.
it always cuts
me up.
