A Shit Ton of Broken Glass and Bad Luck


When the city is quiet,

I swear

I can hear it

                           fucking talk.

Everyone we know

is going somewhere

tonight:

the bars, the bed, the heavens.

I can hear them talk:

the heavens, the bed, the bars.


I look in the mirror—

observing the thinning lines

that carve up and carve out

my eyes.


Here’s my mirror;

here’s how my mirror works;


You only see

                           what you want.
