“sun poem”

This poem was originally published on The Pittsburgher’s predecessor, The Dog Door Cultural.


my knee is burning in the sun

the beautiful beautiful sun

in your living room


i ask you

plum?


(it’s not very original

(we all know what a fruit is

(we all know what a fruit really is)


not everything is a metaphor for

slight death


i am, in fact,

writing death

less often

now, since


my knee is burning in the sun

the beautiful beautiful sun

in your living room ▲
