Bombs

People don’t toast toast,
toast toasts toast.
Don’t argue the meaning of objects.
Pig
in a blanket. Noun verb
noun, noun verb noun.
Bombs hurt
less than pinpricks, said the movies.
Though careful what you believe
because half of the things
here are just here to make
us feel things
like pinpricks in the chipped bone
edges of our skull.
Pinpricks don’t feel things,
things feel things.
And no one ever finishes
anything in this city.
