friday-night cannibal

her hair is pinned up
with last year’s bones–
the ones she chewed
and shaved to thinness

her teeth graze
your lower lip

hard to tell
through all that shining sharpness

if she gives a kiss
or takes your taste

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
