The tablet is about the size
of the hole
a drop of nitric acid leaves
through your hand.
It passes through revolving doors
walls of cells
with a gold pass, as if quickgold.
You watch. Your forearm has dissolved.
Hand blank elbow.
The perfect camouflage of junk:
lost at last.
A pressure in your eyeballs builds
your eyes balloon and burst then run
thick and warm.
You watch. Your skin is liquid yolk.
Cells are popped
like tiny yellow grapes, and weep out
