Savannah Slone

evergreen / estrogen


stuck on time lapse

wreckage suffocation, time



my baby’s first home

a cut out biohazard

the walking wilted

our body, a peony

sterile lining

tampon string stark

against tan inner




our spare cosmos

mouth prayers an insignificance

salt crash

cleansed clean

undressing the sea


tongue to tongue


vertebrae urgency

marrying reactivity to

the naked dismal

an ivy virus, fingers

around my throat


& what is medicine

to a riptide


this preemptive womblessness

a bell jara red light
