Tarantula in Your Tool Belt


Skinned flowers dance naked

as the night comes. Things ooze 

here more than they crawl. Perfume

is a wrench, death is that 

tarantula in your tool belt

and it is God who


blows raspberries

as you laugh, dying

and your body floats out

in every direction

but one.
