Joshua R Helms




Boy is asking for a box full of hurry

his arms angled up & his teeth


those goddamned white teeth of his

are turning red & when did my ear


make its way into his mouth & when

did his forehead start scrolling please


if both my ears are attached still

then who is Boy chewing on & whose


voice keeps echoing it’s time & Boy’s

mouth isn’t moving & Boy’s mouth isn’t


chewing & that’s not Boy’s mouth

I’ve been staring at not Boy’s face even
