papaver somniferum

i ask him to buy me bananas // he returns with poppy seeds
cupboards spill tiny bottles // scripts flower on walls

tissue-thin milkskin // bloodblooms ache in sockets
i listen hard for the tick

scarlet carpet // crimson maw
redolent mine // stigmatic step

i ask // for quiet
pluck poppies // and yet

heartbeat // echo // blister pack
