Poem: The Vulgar Way 

The Vulgar Way
Orphic farewell, and farewell, and farewell
and the ego sum of Dionysos...

—D. H. Lawrence

I’m in your mouth
to the calyx, you
still can’t crack
the secret in one
smooth flesh bite.

Split her sideways,
symbol in a thimble-
sized gender-petalled
squash blossom fruit.
