by Bunganí Zungu

At a distance; round

pumilus' hyoids wrap

and rise between the muscles;

pad' pad lulled their lips;

lassoos long and a blink

chewed and chewed.

Pumilus sticks to the theme of Hunger, literally and figuratively. There are elements of longing, the feeling of loss which manipulates one's wish/desires for some faraway tie.
