Leeches

A leech floats along a pond
like a man’s flaccid penis
who is enjoying a hot bath
and the sight of his member
poising. A leech, though,
has circular saw teeth, genetic
hardware for creating instant
glory holes. Its spit and mucus
slobbering–milkily and wispily
like Jell-O shots—seals out
any pain as each frill
of its head distends and
ebbs. Oscillating. Skin
accordions. Gulp. Gulp.
