Katherine Zhao

sweeten my phlegm

sticky chords of honey envelop my thorax

syrup down my throat

viscid strings asphyxiate me

strings of sugar lace my larynx

desiccating the fissures of my lungs 


soothe my sinuses

until my cortex is numb

soften my heartbeat

until it is no more.

i welcome you, my honeytrap…
