Two Poems at Lockjaw

From Tell the Bees:

“I listened to “No Aloha” one too many times, or I was

exhausted        by washing my hair and brushing my teeth

maintaining this body like a pet”

 

From We Are Very Beautiful:

“You will remember later that my bruises

were shaped like undiscovered continents

I will remember later that your eyelashes

were blackened close to holy”
