Fragments of poetry caught gauze-like at night

Vulnerability sits beside a heart of stone, chided for being late.

Freeze-burn experiments roil in extravagant chalice where poisons hang sweet.

And I suckle oh daily those words because

they declare themselves worthy

poetic

and more,

designed to plug the gaps in our stature

and teeth.

You can always tell wealth by the teeth they choose to display.
