CAL SAYS

 

in this world there are essentially two types of people.
there are creeps who write poems and then there are
jerks who take mdma on your birthday and forget about
you. candleless. cal the lightning bolt to catch at exactly
the precise moment. happy thirtieth birthday. now that
we are getting older, it is impossible to know
everything about someone: too much has happened in
our lives. back when we were twenty not so much had
happened; over time it would have been possible to tell
someone about yourself.

 


 

GISÈLE VAMPIRE PRINCESS

 

blooming lizzie’s lover
gaptoothed rubyfruit
virgo sailing in the bushes

 

silk shirt dress coat
four a.m. crysanthemum
sterling vanitas fingerbowl roseblood

 

hands embroidering the stars
tsunami hair waves
down her ass like a castle

 

gazelle zinfandel zealous brocatel
applies red lipstick after dark
lets it fade through the night

 


Tanis Franco lives in Montreal and is working on a poetry manuscript about queer phenomenology and trans poetics.
