Interloper

Curlicues huddled around a pixie ear,
highlighted with lil’ bouts of gray,
the silver interloper.

The machinery of the jaw tightens
as the bullets from sly almonds
slide from left side to right.

This affection could kill
a constrictor.
Organs tighten in an almond grip.

The forehead is collapsing
on forehead
as it cannot understand why
the tears,
can’t understand the shame.
