14. PIXELBITCH

Yesterday, I was the pixel bitch
The multi-cube stuck in small spaces

We climbed aboard the mat and played
limb kersplunk, waiting for the
elbow to show

Teeth on a blue mat look like rocks
River rocks, gnarled and calcified
by this morning’s current

I didn’t mean to win the game
Her grin a leaked black pen in a white shirt pocket
I didn’t mean to swallow the hole

Today the game is dental frogs
and hello sailor

Counting knots to keep my mouth busy
One two three four kersplunk

Does it hurt when you can put a tongue
right through it?

I always lost at Tetris
Forgot to leave a hole big enough

And then they came faster and faster
Pixelfresh and falling like rain
