girl after hours

By Niamh Jerrie Haran

teething nocturnal tendencies

fanging at bay

a television headset and whistling to

liberated game like a throat

lozenge tastes good when fruity

stacks of unread texts as disco ball

sour faces / flour faces

making dough rise for the thick of it

45-degree neck strain

out twin glazing for a cigarette

circumference     reason to sustain something

fucking     reason to love something
