Three Poems

Emily as the Tower

I have seen Ohio

come for us


& I will see Ohio

come for us


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


& I shared

went to work


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.
