I Know Where the Bodies Accrue Freezer Burn
By Anne-Marie Ross

Inspiration piece

One eye sees
one eye remembers.
The mouth tears flesh
back to when it reached only for grass, then

Ticks of the clock between punches
between barks of his manager
have stretched out
too long.
The horse, tired of weight
takes a page from the tiger’s book.

With one hoof, he pulls the lever
factory doors whine shut
screaming neglected hinges
white walls trap the barking inside.
Hooves melt into long fingers, reaching for prey.

A freezer only just cocked open
holds the secret as to why the boss
is on such an extended vacation.
