“Nights With Teeth” and “Stay” by Elizabeth Mercurio


Nights With Teeth

she held her breath
motionless
doll
his-body
her-body
motionless
you
wanted
it
motionless
she held her breath

***

Stay

The lilies in the greenhouse shiver,
done
guitar
heroin
wallet
done
pen
soil
shotgun
done
the lilies in the greenhouse shiver.
