black beauty
Daniela Olszewska

he married into horse
people, i gifted him a cache
of bats. we zodiac’d.
it was an icing’d month.
vials of starcrisp
needed to ease
the murmuring headgraine.
we’re catholic, intention
matters more than that.
fetch m’offend box
+ the severing
tongues. iterations
of dulcet required.
still, i am the main,
if not sole, beneficiary
of yr decades-long
heartspurt. next time,
make more mind before
you vampireswoop,
before you zombiesong.
