you fall asleep – Colleen Choate

I’d like to hold up by a bitch tree
a witch tree, climbing, chimming, itching tree

climb black branches up a
snow-white trunk, go back, and
forth, and back, and forth, and back, and
forth, and back Toward heaven,
BREAKS literature
w/ non-human modalities, like witch-ants
‘#more witch-centric lesbian fairytale rom-coms’

how do you fall asleep everytime?

dip me into      your sludge
suck the dripping fingers
the bare marrow out the morrow too dry
“Fuck off, Brandon. I am trying
to repent for my sins by giving
back to the Earth.”
