Hashtag Cherry Pit Slut

Frankie Baker


the cherub drumroll always ignites
but how does one wield a blowtorch
bestowed by angels?

i’m not interested
in the magnanimity of beauty
i’m interested in ashes

a smooth mound instead

reverse cowgirl is the color
when I brush my teeth at night
and hear the cherry extinguish
as it hits the water’s surface
