television in the hamper:
Rockjawed man tied to a tree, horse wags knees,
rope hugs tight the torso -- SPLITS! "gssssh"
The Hearing Ear-Beard in oven -gloves licks fingers,
with apples in her skin
nuzzles stone chin.
INKFOOT LIFTS one swollen red toe
AND HURLS IT INTO THE HOT BATH BROTH.
YAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR! catch breath.
He lifts a second toe, ERG, and his throat pops out th mouth.
TOSSES HIS PARTS INTO THE WATER, arms last.
The soapscum gathers round the legshairs and underarm gardens.
An old black gnat comes apart in the water. Things in the drain
rise up into the water. Dead skin, hair, toenails.
Earwig skeletons swing the scene.
INKFOOT sighs into his warm water-wear: someone else's hair!
The water wears Inkfoot also.
