on your knees hacking and coughing

you work to rid yourself of the suffocating

lump in your throat as you spit me out

tired of tasting the bitterness of a bastard's

spittle dripping down your chin connected

to the wad of phlegm lying on the sidewalk

squirming silently in the frigid night air


using the sidewalk's rough surface to sharpen

my teeth to razor sharp shark's teeth ready

for the gorging I begin to gnaw away

the connection between us until we are

separated and I can roll off the sidewalk

and into the sewer where I can learn to

swim through all kinds of shit slowly

traveling to the ocean where I can evolve

like other creatures weaned on milk and honey
