'a Beginning' by AJ Evard

the fever of July and
his gap teeth
call, while I am still
sleeping.

these are the things I
have tried to learn,
unzipping my spine into
the belly of this
place.

be tender,
glow in the dark,
forget how to pronounce your
Own name.

sleeping, sleeping.
sundays aren’t safe
here anymore.
an entire life defined in
distance
And I am always leaving.
