we can hug, but i don't want to make eye contact
mandolyn

after the phone rang
 1
i noticed something was wrong with your middle finger
 2
 
 
then the couch ate its feelings because you sat on the floor
 3
without a pillow or anything remotely squishy
 4
which made me wonder
 5
how your spine could be so perfect
 6
 
 
you bend like a healthy rainbow
 7
not one questionable lump-
 8
it's like a simile, but without poetry,
 9
because it's not that beautiful
 10
it's just, wow, that's neat, you can jump forever.
 11
 
 
the sofa hates me too
 12
because i refuse to let it trick my butt-
 13
it pinches the sciatic nerve like it's in love
 14
and i'm not into that.
 15
 
 
i can flex things like you can
 16
but my scars are pink and easy on the eyes
 17
yours are hard and in places they shouldn't be-
 18
those cuts seem a little pissed off
 19
not in the mood to scab
 20
 
 
you should probably get that finger checked out
 21
but it really is impressive
