I'd complain my way through the tunnels of eternity.


It was gone before I
ever had a chance
to notice its gleaming
torso, like a vial of
mercury reflecting an
afternoon sun:
Emily Dickinson used
a mattress just the same
as anyone else.
This fact somehow surprises
me, as if it is impossible
to imagine the long dead poet
sleeping peacefully like myself.
There are 17 reasons
why I cannot
become
an alchemist.
