Saying /writing
You are the only one I can talk to/

Hearing /reading
And you are the only one I can talk to/

You are not giggling under the tablecloth you are two adults sitting at 
expensive computers touch-typing (oh! yes) resting your index fingers on 
the F and the J waiting for the incoming ping of the instanter message 
like a starting gun

gd 2 c u again

your form is never more than an extension of such content

no one sees you

and no one sees you

doing it

-- Janet Holmes

from See It Everywhere

swooning—not going to the UN but
never believed anything could be saved still
love seems a good idea: “God willing
you will find a wife” g-d willing in English

smile officers do and strip club bouncers do

nearly no one going is


polluted lagoons are pretty egrets don’t avoid them


stuckout limb & a complicated telephone poll series cut off

what can I do / why go home? in my body are biles—yours, too
track by the track and fences self in everyone

-- K. Lorraine Graham
