How to Make Me Fall in Love with You

your cigarette
by twisting it
on my thigh
& I will love you

What I Shouldn’t Have Done When We Broke Up

I nailed
my heart
to his bedroom wall.

Rubber Ducks

I’m drowning
in the bathtub.

You reach your hand
and squeeze
rubber ducks.


When I think of you,
I taste your honeycomb skin—

I’ve never touched you
without being stung.
