Political Debate

kiss your opponent’s cheeks
kiss them on the lips
once
twice
slip your tongue inside their mouth
let them bite down and tug
freeing it from you
watch it drop from their blood stained teeth
let their tongue plunge into your mouth
probe your bloody stump
then bite down as hard as you can
pull their tongue from their mouth
spit it onto the floor
shake hands
embrace
separate

go over your answers
you’ve said things before
and will say them again
your responses are sterile
inhuman
if you react you die

answer the first question
let the blood fly from your mouth
saliva swishing and swashing down your neck
all that will come out is gurgles and spurts
but that’s fine
the public already believes your lies
they don’t need to hear it
they’ll keep on believing
