online poetry workshop



confess the corn
unknown

habituated to the vast
 1
every experience is free
 2
radical
 3
like how i don’t like referring to dad in the past tense
 4
like how i’d like to molt seasonally
 5
like how i threw the patron bottle so i had to go home
 6
call it a zest for life
 7
like how i could be cheek deep in sweet and still scream love me more
 8
like how sometimes shelter only costs $3 and you get a free beer
 9
like how the piano means something, the opiate means something
 10
it doesn’t matter what you call it
 11
it doesn’t matter what it means
 12
like how it’s not that i’m better than you
 13
it’s that you’re worse than me
 14
or like how i’m worse than you
 15
like how she likes a hodge podge of brand names
 16
so you know money’s spent not saved
 17
but we’re not drama
 18
queens
 19
we don’t promise
 20
to kill ourselves all at once
 21
like how i was so happy when he stole $600 dollars from me
 22
because i’d never again get sucker punched
 23
like how we drank whiskey before the distillery tour
 24
call it a vision quest
 25
there is no reason to liken your situation to mine
 26
just tendency
