postpartum cheeseburger

January 8, 2004

new sound new texture
new

compromise twelve dollars in loose change
at home

roomy armholes for comfort pop rock elemental
excitement

life proper is a plastic organizer case
i thought

as it was comfortable to be with the panda bear calendars
somewhere

plastic and cardboard smell but at home waited the same
unpacked

i have never before wanted to sort computer screws
so badly

and when i got home the high definition expired
and

i am left with a wooden newspaper wrapped liberty fry
and

a poem about the peculiar mating habits of
                          qualities of dying all your life within one flesh
never to shed a skin
never to close the door
