swimming and drowningTo John Sweet's previous piece     hiroshima and everything afterTo John Sweet's next piece


the body found in
an anonymous car at the
far end of
a hospital parking lot

the sun like blood

like a fist
and when i tell you i love you
you smile

when we stop talking
the sound is overwhelming

the taste is ashes

this is the way
we choose to starve
