Saw Kathleen on the street today.
She’s lived in Williamsburg for 40 years.
Greenpoint for 20.
She wants to shed a few pounds
to fit into my coat.
Birthday was yesterday.
Got hit by a car last week on Franklin
The metal in my
and fifth lumbar aches
from yesterday’s work out.
Too crazy to die.
Understand your privilege.
Turn your guilt into responsibility.
Take a selfay.
Continue to celebrate yourself
Speak about why
and love is love is love is love
and Michelle Obama
your roommate owes you ConEd money
and hasn’t bought paper towels or toilet paper in the last seven months.
Throw on your new dress.
