Chromosome Death In A Blood Garden

Jasmine Reid


call grass the clutch so here we are    watered
mom ripped to  what hands hold
tinker-fertile remaining   blood let to blood left
a daughter shed   under earth  dirt dirty
pissed on   dead as devil    dance on devil
stomp stamp sent  with broken neck
what you get    blood blood breath
x’d over                   x’d over
x marks the end
x marks begin
