His teeth were endless,

but sometimes a whistle chirped
when he spoke with his tongue wet,
I snort and grind what's left,

the last day's always best.

He asked for my address,
where my hips split and bent,
but I listened to my head:

that room's been compressed,

and silence settles better
when I hear the lighter crackle
without his lips caked and circled,

my afternoon is running.

Now it throbs outward
from a center which
expands, scripted,


though matter remains constant,
pupils dilated and glossy,
his pipe still smoking.

I don't feel like this is as strong as some of your other works, but I can't stop reading it. It's extremely alluring.

Intriguing. A very interesting poem, though I am only about 65% or so sure that I understand what it means....

This is something that at first hints towards the disturbing,
your usage of the imagery of endless teeth and strange dialects
suggests the presence of a monster.

But then reading further I see that drugs and sex are hinted at.
The snorting of that final bit,
the allure of that space between our legs,
the disorientation of someone who's maybe had a bit too much.

This was a visual treat,
and was presented in a way that gave the feeling of this piece of 
work a touch of confusion and of observation.

Thanks a bunch, I enjoyed this a lot.
