unidentified, by Heather Newman


not whipped not buttercream
some white filler 

fugitive dust
                  a meandering Jane Doe
he she it they      trap door

lost monoxide                          
unculturable  bacteria 

riding the delta wave   

read my faceless
                      lips unknown                         


          the way they mutate
                 among us
