The stinger's length
whipping a wax pallet
bug eyes in fishhook
scratched linoleum
faucets pouring fiddle strings
damp scarves of leafy money.

A vent to spill this plastic mouth
throughout the fissured
stone apartments.
Mercury dribbled
in razor faint rectangles
on the ship's flying hull.

A sinew through
the otherwise vacant tongue
that ants crawl like
half frozen honey.
