in transit – 22 w 32nd and woman rewritten/man unrequested by Alexis Telyczka

in transit – 22 w and 32nd

matchbox nudes                          reach for me

           half-crushed nipple,

                        pristine hair

damp goddess looks at godless

failing at self-preservation



eight-breasted beast
constraint begotten creatures

out of circumcised bottles
and smears of paint

careless howls
and careful touch

us
anew
as intended

woman rewritten
man unrequested
