Gimme yr little quiet

BookThug, November 2012

A sample from BookThug:

Sorry K, I made fun of your hair
I just don’t know why it is so long
and it’s true it is also lustrous.
Who do you go home to and
yes, you are beautiful
making this a
nice time
to awaken to my own
ordinary and
delicate human beauty.
And I am she who you love as you love
your fellow
as you love your coworker desk neighbour
I am she
and as you stop –
it’s November and it’s cold; it’s Toronto and it’s sunny
and your eyes are hot
yolks for me
as you love me
as I am
your you.
