Emily Corwin: pink girl takes a tumble

squish squash she walks

she dreams of woods
trees hankering for child meat.

The way is wet and terrible
what can she do boo hoo

spreads her mouth real big,
dry lips doesn’t like water
and she crackles.

feels so crumbly, she do too scaredy cat

to skate across the river
bone so skinny brittle

oh fiddlesticks.

she slips downhill like jack, like jill,
curls, rolly polly to the pit

she pulls the bad hip out
and chews on it
