Any

by Gabriel Ojeda-Sague

any repulsive purple scream
voids the language

it isn’t
debt
but heaving
that makes me
utterance
revealed
masquerading
a bleeding sick
centerfold filament

any bottlecap revisionism
purses the lips
flays the lot

imagine you stretching my thigh
over Philadelphia
too much friction
and overhearing

this man
killed my family

the goddess
of any purple taíno heritage
voids the language
conozco el hombre que me busca
en cursiva

the house centipede
that moves
in doubles

no me
mientes

the thought
of divvying up
the newly taken
territories

curb-stomped; deviant; delayed;

no citizen;
no future;
