April 1998 / Volume One / Issue Two
Dave Gerstle
Sinking in Puke

make me laugh.
crawl in and vomit.
it comes out your nose,
drops you to your knees,
we all watched,
your teeth shattered in battle.

show me that smile.
pearly whites strewn across landscapes
too vast to imagine,
too stupid to remember.

you'll be here for me.
I'll be here for me, too.
wuth three little words:

Now, kiss me back.
I'm crawling to that shadow.
I'm dancing through a graveyard,
feet melting into my shoes.
Come here.
Become here.
Two become one become none.

I'll weep for you now, baby.
Watch the shit streak down my face.
