keep your kitchen squares to yourself
and your blocks of thinking thick as cotton
and your wet soks for the rain soaked carpet
grater of small herbs
the pillow support is another kind of not getting it
and i am the receiver, dial and all numbers rounded
to the proper tenth.
hear me crack
single serve cup
nodding to wake
my love again

Here’s to your health!
