“Don't know where my singing voice has gone./I swear I saw it somewhere here”

for the little god.

Used a potato peeler
to slim down my cheekbones.
Pressed a penny into my throat
with a sledgehammer.
Don’t know where my singing voice has gone.
I swear I saw it somewhere here
last year, kicking a pebble around.

the earth is soft.

mama, did you hear?

late
last night
someone
saw mr. mohammed
digging
himself a grave
with his
bare
hands
