Poem 46

1.

Undue gratification /

mixed hesitation or

heresy

2.

the sound of socks

creeping down the stairs and none

3.

who owns a memory

who steals a memory

?

4.

Does the backyard

double as carpet

against the navy ass sky

5.

(nevermind)

untruth

6.

What joyous feast! O longevity!

O sweet naughtiness —

Baby begins

7.

drunken shopping list:

1/2 beef and lots of carrots

LOTS

of carrots

8.

unanswered calls and

voicemails

voicemails

voiced males —

9.

static

burning exhaled

gold

10.

will bubbles float past the

hair on your back or does

the autumn kiss your nape

11.

unfazed

always steady

forces of steeds

IMPRINTED

12.

coat your pale body

in sun slit black

13.

; or, yet, sow not

till the rocks ’til the morning sun

sews the day

14.

And forgotten now —

shards of beer bottles

brown in packaging

bleak in comparison

scattered

safe

15.

fine mushrooms

shredded

and bled on

16.
