Dream Homes | E. Jesse Capobianco


you remember that saying about molasses

the part about moving slowly like

in a dream like I was in molasses and

he yums up a glass of milk as he says it


well this is like that but the molasses

is real molasses and the bark dark

a little chunky gunk more sticky than

anything like dropping a watch back

over a timezone


and so it’s hard

to move at all and my fingernails

will never be pretty again I hear a bright

whimper is it the limp horn boomer

of the second coming is it a tummy

wanting hot meat wanting molasses
