take a sip from this bowl
this watering-hole bowl
little animal
with teeth sharper
than your intellect
you will grow old
enough to learn
how handy your teeth are
they can be used
to bite the hand of the boy
who feeds you
says you need him to
make you feel whole
he is lying
that if you leave pieces
of your heart on
every boy’s nightstand
and dashboard
your chest would be forever 
red and gaping the
world would be so
for all the wrong reasons
use your teeth
with god-like precision
to slice microscopic
and blood-slip
your heart whole again
