Shazia Hafiz Ramji

just like anew/thing

we all deal/in the usual:
agonies of the frictive
divided/rubbing against
too much of each/other
cock/clit not enough
deserts to roam

on to a night/netflixed
dreaming ursa/major
in our lives’ graspings;
moldy/baby bear

to sleep/if you are
awake, agreeing to
unknowing/this place
nodding hypothalamuses
a way/to move
past the sand/into
cloud scripture.

two potatoes
after Bela Tarr’s The Turin Horse

after crying of course
the first thing I did
was eat two potatoes
with my peeling hands.

Shazia Hafiz Ramji lives in Vancouver, BC. Her poetry has recently been published in Counterexample Poetics, CV2 and is forthcoming in Word Riot.
