Fool's Game

A Quadruple Cleave Poem with Tamyka Bell, Zev., and C. Duhnne


It’s a fool’s game:
our hungry hearts,
delusioning, start
making gods out of

Wonders found, then lost again,
feast on fashions ever falling
to dust. Reforming parts
ourselves, we pretend to be

Perfect in defeat.
Our appetites ever rising
as a phoenix of a summer,
new starts controlling our lives.
