quote confessions of a stomach (no.1) 

that we should take apart our heads
by the teaspoon 

each fragment displayed 

 on the kitchen table 

choose carefully, child

which to toss

and which to chew

(remember that you’re made

of more than a stomach) 

then swallow hard
the bits that you’ve consumed 

become

of you 

& from the old soul 

stands the 

new
