there are ants on my ankles
and they bite me for every hour we haven’t
seen each-other. And I am getting increasingly

and how I have dental hygienist tools in my mouth,
plaque on my joints making them
ache when i move, they creak like old floor boards
in a house that hasn’t been tended too in years.

but you only like to jump
