Two Poems
Alek Lindus

κανω μια τρυπα στο νερο*

you didn't understand that the snails needed to be grazed
are you trying to tame me?


have the whores sucked his tongue out of his head?
I was hoping for his large black tattoo
330 years eh?
he said it wasn't a drive through.
Snuck into Egypt from Sumeria
ferocious in his sexual urges,
he found me in the rushes
i ate him later.

*I'm making a hole in water
