Poetry Reading

 

She is large blue eyes
Gumdrop hair

Her mouth is a tomato…

Gripping the microphone she reads

Paradise Extravaganza!

Her words are small ugly dolls

 

Her second poem is called Fluent in Bullshit

Her third poem is called Fuck Feathers

Her fourth poem is called Who is the bae? I am the bae!

Her fifth poem is called Dude, You’re Not Gorgeous

Her sixth poem is called Hashtag Hag

Her seventh poem is called Go Fuck your IPhone

 

The crowd claps

She throws her shoes at them

She takes off her blouse and swings it over her head

It lands on the greasy floor

 

 

Alesia

 

 

 

Amid the chartreuse chaos

 

City yellow Urban red

 

The air is music

 

She lets her hair down

 

Blue ethereal

 

The clouds are slow white syllables

 

 

Marie

 

Her face is a freeway, red artery.

She sees the world through barricades.

Her eyes are heavy.

There’s furniture in her teeth.

She’ll devour you like the government.

 

 

Lilah

 

That was the time when her hair became a lagoon.

We sailed on it in a slender boat.

A boat shaped like an ear.

The water was affectionate.
