Sunday Start at the Swamp

By Jasleena Grewal

Ortho dribbled down the drain
bubbly estrogen swirls for froggies in
hermaphroditic limbo,
Oversized olive heads lollop on
spoiled bilateral form
webbed helicase

Rubber ducky sheds polymer feathers
into a Bp-A broth, a tadpole slurps
            persistent polygons,
            in his fresh yoc,
routed for demented, miniscule fate

Filtered falsehoods, swallowed with
swamp water
Ortho won’t terminate
the baby boy, lolloping head
demented, miniscule
corkscrew limbs
It dribbles down the drain.
