Onioned

Onioned 8/19

There are layers – dripping with clearness

Glassine paper lanterns on the river
glow irritatingly like fireflies – bobbing
in some sex dance over a lawn

Geologic process sped up and polished

Tart smelled and soil filled – there is a peeling
in our hindquarters – a releasing of the
bowels

If you wet the knife it comes slower
