FALL 2007

Tatiana Zima


squeeze out of me - the beast - the slave - the vermin
the wormwood milk - the mosquito blood - the toad
the ant eggs - the sting - the laughter - the moisture
the refined lumps of fear - the bitch - the stinkard - the pest
squeeze the fool out of me - the rotter - the imbecile
the third eye - the gills - the freak
the stiff - the tyrant - the jeer
the passions - the shame - the roar - the rope
squeeze the blood within me - the anguish - the liver
squeeze everything out of me leaving
nothing to expound spew choke with nothing
to bid farewell to you with
