I’m not moving to fucking New York just because of issues with my speech.

i’ve a slug tongue who
can’t yet speak. so,
like a superhero in a bird
cage, i perch
(on useless arms
useless legs
useless torso-bag of entrails)
preen brain feathers
to be hair-raised
unvillainously.

it’s a pity those thinks never transcend
my head but swell against their
skullcage to make a chessboard.
i swear i haven’t played yet,
i don’t have superpowers:

if i did i’d chew this lump of meat in my mouth and swallow it.
