Watch the house fill up with light
at dusk when the air
suddenly turns back
remembering how close it is to the sea
Monday is a day full of sin. The taut white skin of you
Comes at me like balloons.
Bob Dylan's on the CD rack,
his voice sounds like a heart attack
He excites the world
with the weight of his head.
They give out daisies
Emit sky-high belly hoots
They sneeze during mass
They investigate behind all umbrellas
The last man who loved me
said I always smelled fresh
and sweet like plants.
she's in the mirror
again, pleasuring herself
Are some moments bigger and fatter
Are some moments flat and shiny
while others are prickly and thin?
A self too stranged to a maze,
motion under motion-shimmering: amaze
at the too thin breaks
It's Sophomore Day
the girls are dressed in peach;
awkward, gawky as fish
422 North Cherry, Tucson
