SPIT

 

Martin is afraid
his heart will burst like it always does
when he gargles
face up to the light
mouthwash choking him, tonsils so
cold they burn.

And every second more the alcohol expands
until it shoots through his nose and down
his throat and out his lungs (making gaping holes)
and he cannot take this drowning anymore—he will not!
No one needs clean mouths!
