75%

Fizzling out at night
whatever climax
was nigh slips away

hidden in dark folds
slippery eel

            *

Life insurance
willing to pay out
75% for living
people with GBM

With the money
they go to Disney
Mecca for three
fourths already dead

            *

Enter softly
because I am soft

In the morning Lili
complains I got
the seam wet

the gap between
sink and countertop

washing strawberries
for breakfast

            *

A tornado siren
roaring out of nowhere

rips open a blue
cloudless envelope
of sky

            No symptoms

then
the tumor ten
years undiscovered
finally revealed
