FOSSILISED

We were tyrannosaur wrecks
Then sand and
A fang found fossilised

From my rancid mouth
An abscess gnawed by excess
Wisdom excavated by archeology

a tooth is lost if the root is lost

We lost our truth and we would lie
Our cheekbones slotted eye to eye
Holy in our stink for seven days

We saw each other as we stared skyward
Yet the sunlight on the left
Made the right side darker
And the four a.m. lamp light
Cast shadows
As we searched floorboards for nuggets
For the gin run

all is dark till revealed by light

With wisdom torn from my jaw
I envisioned a hundred year saint
On the water frozen
I too was frozen
Not knowing whether you were coming
or walking away
