i saw a child / building a snowman / only to start stabbing it / in the gut / so hard with his bare fist / it left blood for buttons
Weight Watcher: Woman at diner / taps keys to add up / the calories… / and sighs. / I see her fume / then smile / and eat the calculator.
“palms read”: the suicide marvels / at the way blood channels / off his palms / as if made to spill just so. / ironic, the name / life lines
