Pudding Magazine #60

There’s no bottom
to the depths
of the body,

no lower
one can go

except perhaps
to China and then

upside down
working all day

and night
in the factory

piecing
blue shapes.

Hands move
as dead weapons,

eyes into
their sockets.

I know the untold
lies and love

that’s put
on hold until

sky aches
under the hungry stars.
