Tomorrow morning 1 man’s brain puts
a million other men’s brains on hold. Tom
is my dad’s name and will likely be my son’s,
my protagonist’s, my god’s. Feminism works in
the ways I say it will. No, you’re problematic.
The women who get hot w/ exhaustion are
never the 1s who know it, else they’re
always the 1s who know it. I know
my freckles are like holes in the
receiver. Telemarketers who
call at breakfast make me
miss having some1 to tell
me about fiber. In September
I’ll tell ’em all to rig this vessel
with Twizzlers. Sailors Tom finds
on this shore don’t know shit about
sugar, don’t know it from daffodil food,
or that to love it 1 must first love 1’s own
tongue. Try to guess what My Life lady said:
Woolf had been writing about war that whole
damn time! I mean, when are the hot 1s ever the
1s who know it? No you fetch the flowers, Toms.
My vases died yesterday. I can see all a-million
of you in their sparkly seeds tho: the prize
at the bottom of each box I bust open.
