Perspective

O upside-down pair of glasses
you mean more than science
more than final exams
more than life
life
life
the final frontier
the only frontier
O glasses
ravish me
glasses
torture me
glasses
fill me up
with poetry
terrible poetry
the poetry
of science
and life
and final exams

Creep

Like a moth
to the flame
like a simile
in a poem
like a punch
in the face
like a horse
in its stable
like a bird
on a wire
like a neglected
bacon sandwich
like your mother
last Tuesday
I like
to watch you sleep

On My Mind

Georgia
for crying out loud
every time I think about you
I get an earworm
and that’s not cool
Georgia
not cool at all
Georgia
so cut it out
stop being so memorable
as everything wrong with my life
is clearly your fault
Georgia
you monster
