I’m nervous most of the time. I scribble out letters on guacamole packages in Aldi so they read “made with 4 fresh ass avocados.”

Barfing myself to sleep sounds like it will stop my liver from soaking in fidgety chemicals. It rarely works.

You Can Have My Arms, Here, Take Them

everyone i love is becoming a fragile fish falling off my dresser

everyone i love is crumpled at the bottom of my closet when i’m ready to look at it again

everyone i love ignores the stains on the comforter

everyone i love comes with multiple layers of meaning when done well

everyone i love dancing in an upstairs apartment, praying to air

everyone i love kisses the salt off my legs

everyone i love is still up when i fall asleep and i know it and i worry and i know it

everyone i love will break off into the ocean

everyone i love will touch foreheads

everyone i love knows by the end

for Jack, the golden retriever that lives in my house

I have not posted since last month GROSS

I am working on a poem about something that happened in July and one about a man I don’t know and one about someone I graduated high school with.

Once I saw a man wearing a button on a fishing hat that said “Darwin is Dead, Jesus is Alive” and I lassoed him around the neck with my tongue and shook him til he died. Afterward I had lunch at Long John Silver’s with his wife.

i should have studied to be an underwater ballerina
