tonight was the night i changed my sheets
so i don't have to talk to any people
the father is proud
of how i crushed my
on that bed of lettuce
his child sucks his fingers
the mother liked that movie
it really--under the dark of night
she goes with a shovel
to steal the most beautiful white gravel
and if you're interested [annuals]
i said "bull." i didn't even know
what it meant. the father said,
"not yet, not yet." i urinated
all over his hands. his father
died inside the minivan.
rumor has it city cleanup
finds jeans in all the trees.
shoes over the lines mean
different things where
people say "sneakers."
