SHOUTING IN THE EAR OF DIONYSIUS ABOUT YOUR TAMPON APPLICATOR

A teacher once challenged me to sit still for an entire hour

This is what it is to understand childhood trauma
how it jitters in muscles

Why did Hades use horses

The horticulturist’s trick is to leave evidence of cuttings
so people respect the plants

We cut the grasses so low all the dog pee fell off

I knew as soon as we rang her doorbell we shouldn’t have come
but I really wanted to see my teacher at home on a Saturday

The palimpsest where I live once a cardboard factory
once a bullet factory H.D. was right

How did it make sense to put it under ground
where I sit next to people reading books I’ve read

If this place were covered in snow it wouldn’t hurt so much to fall
