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
