Abdul-Jaleel Abdalla

 

Fucking Dead

 

the night was starving out its sexual urges

when he gored jimmy in the throat last

week at Whitby cemetery watching

the boats burn on the water, their masts

flaking off and up to Valhalla and foot-

fall breaths of their red sails heaving in

the heat like his sick sister dying in some

fucking club by the toilet from an asthma

attack
