Lockdown poems

Day 32

Day of lockdown

Come!

Boil and swallow
Boil and swallow
Boil and swallow

Discover, have fun, read

Come!

Languish
Come!

Knead, flatten, whiten, brown, boil, cover
And swallow.
Sleep

Come!

Leave, run, flee

Come!

Laugh and swallow.
Swallow and swallow
Swallow then vomit.
Vomit then grow pale

Smile,
stiffen, open, introduce, moan, let myself go,
And come! Come! Come!

Sam Hirsh, french version here
