Thief 1280 1920 Rachel Warren

When I summon my knees do you
long for yours

when I pried your kneecaps clean
and slurped their oysters

when I kidnapped your kneecaps
to a biker bar

when I sealed your kneecaps
in a wax kiss

will you tap the blackberry
from your marrow

will you remember me
best in saltwater

will you inhale free
of my kelp tangles

will you exhale carbonated
through open doors

will you regret me
on the 4th of July?
