my heart dwells in a cave overrun
with girls affected heavily by scoliosis.
remember when the nurse checked us all?
back then i could hear the beeps from
both sides. left arm up, away from class.
weren't we all so sure of filth's nature?
now my drawers are a stack of
swim suit edition models baring
painted on flags. this is an outright
political statement about the mass
murders of bees. the single most
crucial part of our crowdedness. the
sun is going away again. i left a
message on a german answering
machine but i couldn't tell if
they were saying leave a message
at the beep or i'll kill you in your sleep.
