I AM A NATURAL WONDER
I want to finger-bang my profile pic.
See-thru has to be all new
about the space between my heart.
But I just want to be invited to things.
When conversations lull, Cecilia volunteers
terrible things about me.
some sort of holiday lamé parade,
I enter the Paris of sleep.
Fellow travelers will deign us
child-like or disgusting,
and we will roll together
with our bodyguard-slash-dance troupe.
There needs to be some sort of Antabuse, but for food.
