Requiem / Take Your Daughter to Work

Later that Crayola morning, Wonder Woman coloring
book and a stack of DC Comics spread across the
black soapstone counter in her lab, her fascination
with cells never quite translated when I preferred
story, a woman who deflected bullets with her wrists,
an Amazon island forbidden to men, a goddess
religion.

Emily and the Red Snow / Emily and the Threshers

The men know the truth of twine, cut and tie, chaff and straw, the bundles shat and separated. In the yellow air visions mingle. Animal and plant. Who does the workhorse see with his broad eyes? What stops the sky from slipping off earth’s yolk?

Instructions for the Twenty-Seventh Year

Matchbox triptych: a parrot with human

teeth, a man with a mouthful of blue

rubies, and a faceless child drinking

from a river running backwards.

Via Lido and the Sky Woman

I look at the names of boats —
a misplaced list.

Only remember the word, naught.

Metallic / Unicorn Motherfucker

Every day is a Friday we say before the aftermath and chocolate kisses on her thighs,

The rotting lemons pimped out suns that don’t orbit.
