open sesames – 3/7/11


open sesames

swallow her adam’s apple
to pop the inner-ears
vibrations exchanged for sound
not worth a toast or cheers

in the time that it takes
for a bone to heal

she open sesames
seal it shut; that’s enough

the talk; too small to see
with the eye that trains
eating your carrots hardly
helps her to explain
