Before the world began, I bit my tongue in three places
Before the world began, the blood beaded down my chin, a hot air balloon upside down
Before the world began, electric hedgehogs blew hot air in my face
Before the world began, I dipped a quill in the blood of my mouth and wrote you a poem.

As the world began, we fell apart on the trampoline, leaping against autumnal leaf-crunch, listen, you bounced high I flipped you off
As the world began, we put in U2 and Runrig and Tommy and pulled faces in the paragon of pearls
As the world began, we held pinky fingers and salsa-danced across a magnet floor, wide echoed resonance
As the world began, we tipped over salt shaker after shaker to develop chestal flight.

After the world began, the steel-dipped creatures took you away, you, sad haunched haughty mirror shards you wore it like armour
After the world began, you cut your skin on discarded trash cans we cast it all to the wind dust
After the world began, gritty beads of dark red ganache shivered down your forearm
After the world began, you dipped a shard in the blood of your blood and wrote me a poem.
