Sarah Marchant



Hello, Ron.
Have you got a family? Are they well?
Shall I murmur the names of
refrigerator parts, shivering between my teeth?

Fixated on the format of my vitality:
cold-cracked lips, naive little fingers.

Demanding, probing,
cursing, inciting,

Lick up my leftovers. I keep you
under my bed – outside the confines of my self.



Sarah Marchant is a St. Louis poet who organizes her dreams in her sleep and struggles with being fully present. Keep up with her work on Twitter.
