Burnt tongue
big bubbles
rising from his throat.
Lean muscles
sunk neck
snug in-between white
burnout bedsheets.
Red eyes
veins popping
morsels stinging,
burning teeth and tongues.
White hands
clutching seats
grasping toilet paper.
Thick white chunks –
stopping words –
flowing out of his mouth.
Wrapping jeans
baggy sweatshirt
dripping collar bones,
sick all over sheets
sick into his family.
Falling fair
clumped fists,
red and white and lovely.
Swollen tongue,
no taste
burnt whips curling.
