Poetry


maybe I should just get out of it.















                                              “as far as young poets
                                              on the front cover go
                                              they were washed up
                                              way ahead of their time”












Sappho’s
woke as fuck
K-martyr



                                              I want to say I miss talking to you but
                                              I fear what I really miss is the feeling
                                              someone was listening because after
                                              nearly five years, I still feel like
                                              I don’t know you
                                              and I don’t think
                                              that’s just because I wasn’t listening.



                                                                                           “yeah but”



“i have a new rapist now”



                                                                                           “& a hyundai”






laissez faire enough


                otherwise it’s like hitting on yourself / in the head w/ a
                                                                            hammer, amazing

                                              once you stop
                                              at your destination

                                                                                           & go out




                of style

                                                                the resource boom
                                                                                       ending
                                                                                   glitchless
                                                            how homerpalooza
                       nuclear family pavement / in Ashfield
                                                             cerebral stereopsis
                                                                    —  fuck Yugoslavia
                   don’t tell me what the poets are doing
                                                      escape retroperpetuity
                                                         come out as bipolar
                                                                                 & gender
                                                                            dysmorphic,
                                                                     how orphic



                               oh, oh, just because you go 2
                               a fancy
                               univers
                               ity, that don’t make
                               your neoliberal arts degree any less useless,
                               baby.



& there was also
Don’t Fuck Up
(Fucking up’s the first step to being a fuck up)



so, uh,

                                                                                                                 Sorry?


                                                                            an abortive attempt
