dark in the teapot

dark in the teapot
hilda tam

the future swells
brew of dark thoughts
a bead of sweat
when the trigger is pulled

red thread
lips knitted

between the lips
blood sealed

after the meat is pressed into casings
after the mixture is seasoned

red thread
lips knitted

bead of sweat
when the beast is brought to the knife

wet leaves
lying dark in the sea

I’m covered
I’m the body

poisonous brew
when the trigger is pulled
a bead of sweat

lips knitted
blood sealed
 
I am the beast
brought to the knife
