i am sitting at the bus stop
quietly listening to vince staples
instagramming the festive trashcan
in front of me

it is filled with a
rainbow’s representation
of poop baggies

i look up to notice
a man barreling across the street
with outstretched arms

I’M HERE FOR YOU
he shouts

and i wonder

he throws himself onto the bench
points at my green hair
and asks me,
“do the curtains match the drapes?”

 


 

NO SHE DIDN’T

 

i want to fuck
in the grand canyon
before i die

*i want to fuck
in the grand canyon
while i’m dying

the other day
my dad told me
about some french couple

that fell from a castle
to their deaths
mid-coitus

i thought that
was really hot

and i wondered if he came

she probably didn’t

 


 

AUGUST

 

trying hard not to
like Tame Impala in my underwear
I am two hits shy of becoming a bug

the unconscious
guy in the grass
is being rained on
by a bag of wine

it sprays
out the tall man’s crotch flap

whispering into the megaphone
because you are too drunk to remember me
i repeat the same sentences
over and over

forcing a stamp
into the gray matter
of an otherwise blurry brain
