Cloud Headaches

july will ruin a lipstick

august is resisting the urge to shave my head

tea has to cool for
longer in these months

waking up to white skies used to excite me
but now it instills almost a panic

cloud headaches, she called them

my phone tells me it will clear up in Cooperstown, anyway

sometimes having feelings for someone else is
two river stones grating together in my head

Colored Spit

Keep me on your purple tongue. / I will not be swallowed like an afterthought snack.

Sweet Thing

this / lonely / attracts / men / to my ankles,
