humor forehead orange scissors
accordion lunch prayer
scorpion breath touched
arrival sending blended ears
blessed flicker against selling clouds
without placing them
behind bitten apples
despite fragments seasoned
by bitten fingernails fresh
in leaving fingers alone

humor forehead
organs glowing winter
demanding winter throwing
orange scissors piano stage
forgotten bible spine
broken prophecy
memorized erased
encased within doubt
spread against forever's violin
corpuscle demons eating

frosted grasshoppers hopping
inside joy knowing little men
question revolutions underground
violence yielding zygotes
applied destinies animal murmurs
forgiven humor forehead wiped
of dusty books the color of musk
atomic balls crushed by history painters
drowning halfway down staircases
upright coffins borrowed

from heroes humoring foreheads
before headaches take over
the world genuflects orange scissors
crucified days shredded in faith
