sour fruits

x ray earth ray
window to sea spray
a waterfall in negative

dust me with sherbet
then tell me just what
you want to do about it.

i would like to say
you are the same
when seen through a frame

but it shows me
another layer.
there is more to you

than you would like
me to know.
when you tell me

to go climb a tree
I will- a pine-
I will scrape all the skin

off my legs
leave them raw
purple-pink like meat

like the underneath
of you.
you are true. you are

stalactites, a tall salty
wave in slow motion.
crash down on me.

you hide in the corners
of yourself, eat an apple,
viciously, so it

makes your gums bleed
makes your sweat
squeeze through taste buds
