Oral Fixation

I think of putting
The glass tip
Of the dropper
Into my mouth
Feeling it’s smooth
Round edges
And biting down
Until shards of glass
Cut little slivers
In my tongue
Then placing it
Back inside
The tincture

I think of putting
The pink tip
Of my matte lipstick
Into my mouth
Sucking it
And tasting the botanic
Chalky flavor
And then biting down
Into the smooth
Creamy stick
And chewing
The dry clay
Until my mouth
Is full
And pink slime
From the edges
Of my mouth
