some older, individual short poems.


I.

M. sleeps
confidently,
eyes avocado,
fingernails
pear;
bits of fruit
tangled in her
hair.

II.

i am going to start curling,
try out for the olympics,
do a lot of drugs,
discover god, buddha,
muhammad or
something.

III.

we’re all sleepy,
we won’t sleep

everyone’s mattress is
everyone elses to share

be nice to your neighbors,
let them swim in your pool

you were so pretty, Sylvia,
before you cut your
hair.

i really enjoyed these. something about the gentle, quietly confident tone captivates me.

oh and that final stanza is fantastic.
