Roofing Nails

Hungering for her,
he was diagnosed with roofing nails.

His wild shoulder
digging in her crotch

created the weary diamond
which cut off the metal

of her mother and father.
Her little sister

stood in amazement
as the wall-teeth

added up,
and the lovers

made of water
boiled in a corner

like crisp machetes
of sweet corn.
