I could eat LIGHTNING by Caitlin White

I could eat LIGHTNING

KNIFE AND FORK
POINTed SKYWORDS
Twirl it up on the prongs BABE
This storms an up market Italian restaurant
I am a snake, tail
curved around the battery powered fake tealight candle
I unhinge my jaw
fangs buzzing
fellow diners look on their meals sodden by the wayside
wine glasses full of rain
