Breadcrumb #509


Lavender spit in sink 
not a tooth misplaced 
not a soldier out of form 
bite the adobe trench
granular bones to pick 
the moss-earth out
the blueberries are abundant 
cover all tracks with magenta 
oil and dissimilar milk 
vanishing into nothing 
appearing on the third day 
mauve as apocalypse
drapes don’t match
so return for full refund 
or rip the carmine root 
and stem and here we are 
back to lavender spit 
and blueberry juice in 
the pit   keep staring for 
a sign
it won’t arrive tonight
