I Woke Up by Keith Mark Gaboury

Can we kill
this memory like swallowing
a galactic arm?

“I Woke Up” by Keith Mark Gaboury

in a root of speed
where tree rung
limbs sprouted
out, bursting through
my boyhood’s
bed frame confinement
when you walked in
to find my berries
pulsing within a box
of adolescent air.
               OH MY
dropped from your lips
like construction bricks.
I of course
draped my exposure
under my blue earth
blanket. Can we kill
this memory like swallowing
a galactic arm? A pancake fry
muscled under
the bathroom door
as my juice squirmed down
our hungry drain.
