BEFORE

i had a dream
the beatles wrote a song
called “juliet.”

my eyes do some kinda
yoga, sliding back and
forth from focus. it’s april-
why am i inside?

…but i spent my
christmas bonus on you!

AFTER:

the thin blue book
the crisp green fish
flying off the hook

no time to tuck a note
in the porcelain piggy nook

the buzzing does get to me,
sometimes. head an egg
propelled by iodized water
heated to a rolling boil to
explode.
