les dieux

Francesca Kritikos

the gods are eating grapes
i haven’t understood them
for the past two winters

my mouth is a frozen door
that eats when it can
and starves, and starves

if i worked my fingers raw
i’d never make the things
that they can make

kneeling is understanding
but it’s hard to kneel
in all this blood, my blood


les dieux’ was published in 2016 in the UEA Undergraduate Creative Writing Anthology, Undertow.
