Do you want to know what it’s like living
in a body with neighbors pushing though cracks?
What’s it like growing soft grass and limbs
regardless of proper watering? Unfortunate,
really– a girl’s index finger is glued to her thumb.
Poor thing has two arms; poised &ready to run.
Three silver snaps at her crotch make her feel safe;
like there could be a garden wall; like the litter-free
slogan on the billboard might one day mean something.
“Don’t Mess With Texas.” Don’t Mess.
