I create as I speak: abra
A moment from mind, retrieve
The breath, an arm, redress
A skeleton in flesh which nourishes
Me as I undress.

I transgress as I speak: ka
Hear phrases like mantras, feel his weight,
His grip, plunge
My teeth in a thigh,
My head in the sand.
Enamel cracks on his pearly eye.
Dry, I repeat a name, his
Name, see him dwindle and

Disappear like this word: dabra
