*/the new sobriety/*
Years pass and are salutary.
A thin scum coats
the ornamental pond
out of nothing, working
a languid expanse. Life
is raw and indifferent
to refinement, as
happy using Leda
as the swan. Before
the whole system descends
into Lent, hush, bitter
organ, and wear your
brief colors—dim orange,
dull pinks, bruise blues.
My pronouns are shipyard, jellyfish & ten
I sorely miss the city
The angels miss me more
Locked in a bevy of worrisome corners
I turn the river over to rub its belly
Uncertain how long it will take
Mãng cầu, yêu cầu
Our fruits often share the same desire
Wishy heights of romance
