    dotsCarved My Name into Your Sidedots

    I hold my pain between my teeth
    sinking into its slug-like skin,
    its smooth eyeless body flailing like a fish:

    Its insides clear and liquid
    bring the taste of canola oil and ash
    as they drip down my chin.

    Once limp I let it fall
              into a skillet
    fry it in baby fat and basil leaves,
    throw in sliced onion and bits of garlic,
    a pinch of ground pepper,

    dip it in ginger sauce,
         chew the head
              then swallow the rest.

      Very descriptive, yet very closed. What happened to the carving of names? The title threw me off after reading the poem and the poem threw me waaay off. (nice :D) I liked it, wish I knew what you were talking about, but it was awesome all the same.
    Keep up the great work, and I'll keep reading

      I once heard a poem about fish sticks that was phenomenal. I had me laughing out loud (which I don't often do in public). I like this somewhat if for no other reason than it is different. I wish I could break form the norm, but I just don't have it in me.

    Where did the title come form? Based on the title I was expecting something compleatly different.

      This piece is pretty obscure. I don't have much to say about it. I dig it...I think.
