Skeleton Burrito

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2021 by dc

Under a sky mouth wet,

Dipping into earth,

An invisible hand
Slowly lowers
The skeleton burrito
With a sigh.

A sweat forms and rains,

A silence pickles
And a summer steam rises
Like moist ghosts ascending
From a hot, painted plate,

Saintly and sweet
With sour songs;

An appetite gifted.
