BELIZE

 

At church camp I wrote
I didn’t believe in god
on a piece of paper
& we all tossed our notes
to god into the fire.
Language just happened
right? When I called
the live poultry shop
the man picked up &
said something unintelligible.
I could hear the clucking
chickens. I thought
I’ll put that in my novel.
Maybe I should’ve wrote
it different. I read how
contingent statements
regarding the future
right now are neither
true or false. I told her
I thought it was strange
that the bar would play
the original “ignition”
& not the remix. It was the night
of the equinox. Whenever
someone tells me their
zodiac sign I always say
I knew it of course
you are it’s so obvious.

 

 

 

ASPERITAS

 

Years ago I planned
a solo trip to egypt
but instead I went
on wellbutrin. I’ve
seen two oceans.
I haven’t read all
the books. The
cigarettes I buy
have pyramids
on their packaging.
The sky reminds me
of a geological word.
The sky is like schist
& I am too but also
not really. My friend’s
name Kangsan means
river-mountain
in korean. I think that
is the most beautiful
name. Scientists
have named eleven
new clouds. I couldn’t
explain where the
steak came from the
cow. I motioned with
my hands cutting
into a cow. The left
hand was the cow.

 

 

 

LITTORAL

 

Another beach. The clouds
diffuse a shining. The sun.
We rewatch the water
merge again. Life’s an
impossible gif. A missed
frisbee lands slowly
like a bee. Children scream.
Birds scream. Is it true what
they don’t say? I do not know
how to swim. I feel so
angry. Sediment forms forms.
Your hair & the sand
gets everywhere. Near
the horizon are boats
gentle as planets.
