Dark Poem by Alistair Thaw

Dark Poem by Alistair Thaw: woman bathed in multi-color neon lights
I made that dead thing
from what I found inside your mouth
it was my project, for you
a baby of sorts
ours, to keep and cherish
to have and to hold
in our hands
and, between our fingers
when I remember where I left its head
we can crown it together.
