untitled This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Tonight I am going to sleep naked under mountains
of soft blankets and thought
warm and wake up to clear noonlight
streaming in between tree fingers, the window
breaking beams
of bright gold dust
red lip wild hair sock feet
don’t care
and if my hips are too wide
as I stand before the mirror mismatched
underwear pale white bellybutton armstretch
raw heart good words always hungry
well then I will
red lip wild hair sock feet
don’t care
some more
