Asterisk

my kitchen is a mess.
i’m chasing chickens back into the coop. don’t chase that rooster, look what he did to My Leg!

we’re eating a bowl of strawberries with our eyeballs coming and going in waves. the sun is being born. i know you want it. i know you won’t say it.

did you see those lights? you’re in prague. your half drunk beer is in the fridge

and our dead mouse is in the freezer.

when you turn around i put on red chapstick. fuck, turn around. turn a-round!

* and then i am back in this cabin and there are triscuit crumbs stuck to our butt cheeks and i am still bleeding

          canine teeth on a marble edge. my baby. my baby my baby.

 

We asked a photographer to take a portrait of a stranger inspired by a poem we received.
