(snippets)

the poetry i write is not about him and when it is i scrape it from beneath my fingernails with .07 pencil lead and wipe it on the couch’s underbelly.

it grows stale and hardens around the edges. later, i peel off what the vacuum doesn’t catch and swallow it. i write too many poems about swallowing what shouldn’t be.
