Sharp Things

                         -Jen Schomberg Kanke & Kristine Snodgrass

What sharp things
have I swallowed
toothpicks, safety pins, and
the diner much-
anticipated postprandial
peace and satisfaction. 
Like a grain of sand
between two millstones, 
the foreign matter grates on us – 
until it is worked free.
Or pierces us in the trying.
Lacerations or punctures,
does it matter which? The hole
 is a hole
