Tavye Neese

Oath to the Mouth

Shoes polished
Mouth shut
Slabs of meat
Rumble gut
Fist with knife
Dainty, dainty
Knuckles white
Meat meat chew
Meat meat grind
Shine shine
Gems of jaw
Gems of face
Shape of slaughter
Mouth embrace
Sinew, muscle
Heart beat, bone
Kill mouth, kill mouth
Mouth made throne
Over lamb, over foul
Sky and ground
Ligament: garland
Gristle: crown
