happy valentines i am not
at my jazziest       matching sweat
shirt       hair in a cheerful pony so dirty
it would stay up by itself       “i hope
you’re as good at sucking dick
as you are at being lonely”       unknown
quantity of poems inside me     unknown
quantity of living moments       moon’s outside
almost full       blood on my pillow
never these days
i take care of myself okay
like a baby something
like a mama something
& my eyes
dressed like candy
big as the moon
& it’s fine to be full
of pretty much anything
just for a while       i love life i love being
alive one day after another
forever. what’s next.
