so much / a bit

Nina Puro

orange groves sprayed against the frost all night / a bit / a little bitter / so much air / and so thin / but it lifts planes / scraps of static / old gold tooth you hocked / cold tooth wedge of flesh / blue suede baby shoes coated in / gold lemon grafted in the orange roots and worms / orange boats floating across the kitchen table / smiling through orange boat teeth at soccer / tooth once kicked out / some swallowed shards, some spat / a little bit / pips growing into trees inside the  stomach / some juice some sludge / some spray of flesh / teeth ruined by the lift / planes sprayed the same as orchards / keep ice from lacing wings / so much weight in water / glaze rime rind / come morning frozen oranges / hang like men from the trees
