PLEASE

 

learn how to braid hair just to touch me
wear latex gloves so our cells will never touch

sorry it’s like this now
but also glad you don’t respond, really
I always get the luck of last contact

life is such a strange swirling
the sky on august 4th at 530 am is a light lavender
but it won’t stay that way

I thank the universe for the sweet promise of change

thanks

I’ve learned to look at apartment complexes differently
but I still feel afraid
of the things they stand for

eat me like a termite and kill me with my expired Utah license plate
