Robert Fernandez

fangs left over in a
bowl of tomato-basil soup

flaking-skin camera
beside you in bed

cherry-red snowcone
dripping down your leg

pressure me at
all costs

one drop of
blood in the pupil

cocker spaniels
scamper in the carnage

bed of tomatoes
silvery in the moonlight

mimis stop to count
the rice heap

lost boys plunge
through the clouds

fat red gumballs
dancing on tile
