FULL

 

 

I stamped myself with Femininity and bought a new comforter.
I bought six plants, and a snake shaped bracelet, and a pineapple lamp.
I put everything in my bedroom and it was full.
Always have something missing, you said.
I just made coffee.
Another dolorous day
composing myself
against myself.

 

 

 

WHO LOVES A TENT

 

—after Bernadette Mayer

 

 

All movie’s hot intent, love’s not cold poetry.
My cold intent’s not poetry, not movie love,
not moving in a hot shot tent but making
moves. I’m cold, leave poetry
in tents. I’ll pretend to make a movie.
Cold tents are poetry.
I’m rent of holes, love’s not
hot at the movies, but tense,
say you’ll choose me, chew with me,
love’s not cold poetry.
Whose hot in tents?
I’m hot I’m not.
Whose making love in tents?
I’m cold and making movies.
