Lucy Alexander # 79 Dog Smells Fear (for KK)

All these busting scents
vibration odour
sour crinkled shoe
plant stem polish
red water smear
tang greasy sweet tooth
garden puddle drag

chicken shit low white
waiting, waiting, here
you come all breath
burnt toast and tooth rot
notes of raspberry
leather of your palms
frayed skin of fingers

bite down fear
this blood-close-to-skin
sweat oozing honeyed
armpit groin tangle
from head – sebum of hair
to toe – jam sour dust cracks

deodorant even stinks.
