“Sensation” – Aja Hannah

Breaded twigs stuck with shining, salted sap
Snap between incisors
Crunch between molars
 
Fingers dip and dart
Graceful ballerinas
Steady soldiers
Sweeping the bag for the next rebel
 
Target sighted.
Take him to the hole!
 
Careful of the fingertips
Careful of the tongue
 
Not too quickly
Bite down quick
Clean the lips
the tips
the bits
of the dusted grits
Off the pretzel stick.
