we are attempting
to speak with a single voice – no
group has ever built

unity underneath an
invisibility cloak

the two cockroaches

you still leave an itch

(for t)

only in this city could i have
found myself an accomplice
to murder so early in life.
you turned up the radio
to spare me the details
but i still heard
the water struggling against
becoming a co-conspirator.
when you finally walked out
i looked up,
surprised, “that was quick.”
you replied it doesn’t generally
have ample-sized lungs
to boast about
and with your hands still
wet, you covered the body
and carried it outside
shielding it from the cold rain
.
