White Sans

by Rose Knapp

Venice beach waves flatline sands
Morphs onto black tar
Yes trap club Isis sliced wind blow

Over your fetishized Côte d’Ivoire
Our skins rapture in
Mutual assent nodding off pasted

In-between PCP infused hatred
Incarnate edge-play
Blood disgustingly monotheistic

Moonlit washed sands baptized
Levitical priesthood
Kiss knowing neither skin is right

Levitating over cobblestone blok
Ghost towns when
Tourists desert trains segregate

Us into designated destinations
