twelve webbed toes for the girl with hands full of pumpkin seeds
roasted seeds   roast the toes   handle flak      parry woes
parry her woes pick up seeds she’s dropped with your long webbed toes
foot her seeds  carry woes       gnaw at flak    handheld toes

with her seeds in her hands and her hands on your toes
breathe deep ocean breaths walk beside black water
open her eyes in order to find the cleanest path between

and with her eyes black and open grazing the sea for the cleanest path between rolling pumpkins and whitecaps

pull the flak from your teeth take a deep ocean breath and brace yourself for black water flak and black seed woes
