What I want.



For some


I daydream

when my hair flies

and my pores raise

— he pulls up

because he knows

my routine.

Breathing out,

I close my eyes,

I breathe in,

and I’m pulled back

— houses full of laundry

pushing their smells

clean, fresh


on the lawn in front of me.

But what do I want?

I want to eat less

red meat

drink less

but more


sit at tables

vibrating from


sit among poets

converse with people whose answer is

“No, I don’t care to be famous —

but I care to be remembered


I want to dye my hair to match my



someone to love

me for my foul mouth

and laugh at my jokes

dance in the kitchen with my

socks on

that I don’t wear anywhere else (because I can’t


I want to sniff library books and

hear the cellophane binding crinkle

in my hands

while I highlight my favorite


flag pages

and number them to match their doppelgängers.
