“If you need a job and someone offers you a job, take the job. Working is better than not-working. Then, four years later, start your own media empire with someone you met on the Internet.”

her unerring eye
a patriotic abstraction 
where the buffalo still sort of occasionally roam

poisoned
moody-spooky
imperfect

touch-screened into extinction
(no-stylist) style
someone hates us

(this poem is an erasure of the Vogue profile of Blake Lively)

We eat cod for dinner. The bones trail
onto our plates like a pile of crisp
rotted skeletons, smothered in
a buttery language. Caught in our throats.

At night, Jacob walks his dog
who barks with the stationary lips
of a ventriloquist.

Whenever I get bored, I ask him to tell me
what he remembers of becoming
human again.

i.

Here is a house swallowed by
ocean; it’s giving birth tonight.
Something limps inside your belly.

You’re sleeping on a futon.
This is not your house. Outside,
rain roars like cannons

for that stretch of absence, waves
reacting on waves. You feel shame;
it is a useless emotion.

Out the front…

You guys, my friend Joanna Valente is the real deal and you should read everything she ever writes.

Atticus Review - The Blood Issue

My poem, “The Naming of Eve,” is in THE BLOOD ISSUE of The Atticus Review. This is even more hardcore than finding out that the employees at the Midtown Panera know me as “the pickle lady.”

Sometimes, a gallerist can turn someone away from being a patron, even when they couldn’t afford it.
