Three Poems


Emily as the Tower


I have seen Ohio

come for us

before


& I will see Ohio

come for us

again.


I really don’t care

why they storm

our metaphors.




Emily as We Remove the Bone


Once we agreed

that we had bodies

the love


Emily

& I shared

went to work


experimenting

with that idea.

Not all


of our ideas

are good.

It’s fun, though.




Emily as Another Slaughter


Look how my muscles can hang

when Emily decides to have me

be displayed like this, here.
