And what I do is drink knives

There’s a piece of my esophagus
Just Swangin’  (Drake Reference)
My father tells me
And what I do is drink knives
By the bucketful
To dislodge myself from this
Piece of renegade me/flesh
And I’ll probably never think of
Something more important to say
Than “I really like you”
So I’ll keep my mouth swallowing
Letting my thumbs express themselves
Across various screens/realities
