we try playing wack-a-mole fleeting certainty

Child with Toy Hand Grenade in Central Park, (1962) New York City

kitty kitty
here is my throat
give me your wrists 
she insists, we tie 
running with scissors  
to a tending of funk 
waxed moonlight 
while herb gathering 

how do we crawl 
the spawn dark 
home passing go 
I ask peering-ly 
she laughs 
you remember 
the womb poem 
it goes a little 
like a clutched at 
countdown :

faux pas
blood bank 
heist light  
through night 
until eaten 
with dawn ...
