 Romeo and Juliet

If you will die for me,
I will die for you
and our graves will be like two lovers washing
their clothes together
in a laundromat
If you will bring the soap
I will bring the bleach. 

 The Fever Monument

I walked across the park to the fever monument.
It was in the center of a glass square surrounded
by red flowers and fountains. The monument
was in the shape of a sea horse and the plaque read
We got hot and died.

 Xerox Candy Bar

you're just a copy
of all the candy bars
I've ever eaten.


Everybody wants to go to bed
with everybody else, they're
lined up for blocks, so I'll
go to bed with you. They won't
miss us. 

Boo, Forever

Spinning like a ghost
on the bottom of a
I'm haunted by all
the space that I
will live without
