I’M GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT MONEY FIRST

I am at work right now. It’s 2:50pm on a Monday. I’ve been sick for two weeks. I’ve worked on and off through the holidays. I keep canceling appointments and missing deadlines. I haven’t written a poem in over a month. I have a meeting at 10am…

I AM GOING TO DO SOMETHING

I am going to do something you can’t ever talk about. I am going to be really fucking quick. I am going to turn all these rocks into flowers, I am going to turn the flowers into circles and then, in the morning, when there is no fog, you will sit in the circle and you will say YOUR CIRCLES ARE NOT REALLY CIRCLES. You know how this must feel. I take you home and then you go to sleep. I take you home and there is lots of fog. I am yelling things and you are putting together the pieces of a dream. I say I WOULD HAVE YOUR HAIR A MESS. I do something that embarrasses you. My skin is hot so we use aloe and then we do something that you tell your friends all about. The fog is in the bathroom and on the mirror, the fog is in the hallway and the bedroom. I can’t see you but you’re pretty, I can’t see you but that’s okay.
