Kimmy Walters


when cars pass outside a
tuxedo of light moves over me 

I don’t understand where
on my body to keep these feelings

I might grow a new tooth
for each of them

and afterwards
tie them to the doorknob
with red string and

have someone
pull the door closed 

I showed you my
tiny nature 

you animal

I’d like to shove your mouth
full of my teeth
