Magical Solution

for H.W. who planted the seed of this in my skull

looking for a short poem
without explanation
one that says in a word or two what’s up

looking for a short one that gnaws bone
mean and tough as the revelation
you are with the multitude alone

it would key to the instant written
tell a sad story or sublime
of the meat I gnaw as I sip a magical solution

; as I guzzle time
