I met my butt in a PittsburghA
hotel room My faceB
still looks like my faceB
but not my butt my hairC
-
no longer resembles an adD
for Jell O pudding people thoughtE
it was chocolate pudding for yearsF
so thickG
-
and rich There was fogH
in the bathroom and then not fogH
I faced my faceB
and then not my face the mirrorI
-
staring at my assJ
winked at the mirrorI
staring at my faceB
-
and the future was definedK
as an effortL
to use the word sag in my resumeM
Have sagged willN
-
sag am looking for a positionO
in which to maximize my saggingP
potential I once caredQ
what went on back there aboutR
-
the extent of grip and rise justS
as some birds craveT
the reddest plumage and I propositionedU
mirrors watched women s eyesV
follow turned in shop windowsW
to see if my pantsX
fit their purpose Then loveY
-
and car payments love and the sofaZ
needs to be moved love and her grandmotherI
dies my grandmotherI
dies loveY
and she comes home and I m thrilledA2
by her coat and voiceB2
and the brown habit of her eyes SheC2
-
likes my ass and liesV
about its travels how it s lostD2
focus and there are wattlesE2
to come please GodF2
if denturesG2
only partials may DependsH2
-
be cheap in bulk and the earthI2
generous with its telepathy I mJ2
-
in Pittsburgh tonightK2
and with herI
mirrors don t scare meC2
room service is a gasJ
because she s alive I m a giantL2
a tight assedM2
titan because she s aliveN2
and saysO2
-
come home the Honda needsP2
new brakes a robin flewQ2
into the window todayR2
but shook it off justS
dizzy stunnedU
by reflectionO
