Slick Bellies

SLICK BELLIES

SUCH TENDER TOUCH GIVEN TO NEW
OLD IS SUNK IN SEA
SALT WASHING SHORE, FLAVOR
THOUGHTFUL MEALS
WASN’T LONG AGO THIS TANG WAS GATHERED
BY FLAKY HANDS
COASTAL BREEZE
A STING SO WELCOME IT BENDS LIPS UPWARDS
TEETH CAPPED
READY FOR FISH AND COCONUT RICE
EVERY STEP
A CHANCE TO WALK FORWARD
MOVEMENT TOWARDS CHANCE
SHELLS OF UNCERTAINTY SCRAPING BALD FEET
SAND DOLLAR COFFINS, A DELIGHT TO SPEND
TO BE BURNT WILLINGLY
HEAR A CHOIR OF SLICK BELLIES
HEAR YOUR NUMB SURPRISE
HEALTH FOR LILACS
TEARS ARE BUT WATER
