Tug

Selfish swallows
and spits back out
what he took
you’ll have to take too
and it circles
and it circles

Cut in half
enough times
you reach for the saw
when doorbell rings
and it circles
and you take
and you take

Hunger happens
in crowds
so I cut my way out
and it circles
and you take
and it bleeds
and it bleeds

This is a rock
halfway to the window
the knot
that gets tighter
as you tug
