    The Hansel & Gretel Forest 7

    Hansel has pushed Gretel
    she is on the outside-the edge
    of his mind, this story, this tall tale
    a Flit-in and out, a sometimes blink

    the beldame has
    slid inside, soaking up the
    edges, thick heavy sponge.
    she feasts/flirts—leaving
    bone shells—she goes for marrow
    a seeker of sorts, maybe

    cocooned in a triangle shaped room
    Hansel is strapped
    he taps lightly with a finger against the
    wall, holding out for—
    anything besides a beldame
    her eyes craving insides
    the ends of his toes sucked clean
    on the pristine floor, the deep inner core
    pointy hollow room
    spic and span clean
