- from “the moon” in “I Can Remember the Meaning of Every Tarot Card But I Can’t Remember What I Texted You Last Night” by Elle Nash
“This isn’t Texas anywhere except at your temples.
Where the sun lives. Where the smoke gathers.
Your redhead unraveling in handcuffs, in the salt grass.
Your apple chucked over your shoulder, half-eaten.
Your frown lines. Your James Dean. You’re bad enough.
Can’t be poor when even the cops beg for a souvenir.”
- from “Lucky Like That” in “Make a Fist & Tongue the Knuckles” by Emily O’Neill
“…There’s me sweating my balls off
at an electronic slot machine in the back
of the Twilight Room in North Portland,
trying to forget the way you’d
let me piss in the trees when
we were drunk late, talking on the bluff
above the river, not cheating
on our girl/boyfriends, terrified
of this new type of love we’d discovered.”
- from “Clicking through Karen’s Wedding Pics” in “I Was Talking About Love—You Are Talking About Geography” by Bob Sykora
Much love y’all, cheers !!
