Edible verse

Choking Hazard

We should have outgrown
swallowing each other by now.
First comes the choking hazard, then we
want to inhale him/
devour her.

And then? Then we take
spoonful by spoonful

by spoonful
(it seems, for the rest of our days).

But fish bones still get stuck and grown hands clutch.
In the end, the lucky ones
sustain on others’ mouths.
