Is this the horse promised?
Doing her best to stilt walk
straight in a world
whose ground is naturally queer? Kindness
I have not exhibited in five years
and home could be crumbs.
There is a fire in my thighs and a glance on my tongue.
I grasp toward straws unseen. Abstraction
can shit itself in a fire.
They are against expression. I am against cages
of any shape. I eat a pear
and taste nimbus clouds. I keep on saying aloud I will not leave the house
but what do I do?
I leave the house
end up meeting somebody who appears to be a golden deer
and what do they do?
Quickly spear me
into a crowd.
