poetry

Stacy R.

he punctuates
every sentence
with “you know
what I’m sayin?”

says the poet is
like Kurt Cobain
claims she must not
like celebrity

or

“telling the same
story a million times
on the today show”

we tracked
down his
birth certificate

it says “Louisiana”

foster care

gay

skin black
as midnight
sky

he makes observations

uses too much
sugar in
the coffee
we bring

says he sleeps
outside
and respects
spiders

says

“I just don’t want
them to touch
me”
