She took a glug
Of bleach. Exhaled as
Hell’s treacle drooled like honey
Down her throat. Her vomit
YPN team: Jake’s poem skillfully engages with all the senses, particularly touch and taste. He uses great-sounding words like “glug” and “drooled” to evoke sensation. In contrast, the last four lines use spare words and short lines to complement the horrible theme of cleanness.
