Patty Nash 


Preoccupied like a bug 

With past wrongdoings

Sofia cuts her hair

With rusted scissors

Jagging a line

Near her delicate corneas

As I’m getting mayonnaise

Massaged into my scalp

Or I did

Hoping to gross

Out the lice

I’ll spoil you, it

Was futile, though

Even now I can smell it

Like burnt toast

The psychic alluded to

In the formative scene

It’s frozen and buttered

And atop of that, salted

Like a large precious mineral

I could lick from a wall

If you gave me 20 dollars

And even if you didn’t

I’ve no compunction

Barely even periods

Throughout much of history

Instead a platonic

Saltine need

For a single grain

Of milk rice in the shaker

My mother made me

When I was ill

Which I am not

Now though the line

Between wellness

And its opposite

Gets fungible

Easier to like

Luxury velveteen

Recliners in the theater

Making audible breaths

Then halting them

Or watching an antecedent

Device nostalgics

Like lighting

Like torches

You could decorate your yard

Or get at Home Depot

With while doing it

What with the medial

Circumlocution around it

Its shift to the next thing

What fireworks sound like

Their connotations

I free my location

For fifteen minutes

Hope I’m encrypted

Directly following that

A blue-eyed avatar with a laptop

Pursuing her caffeinated friend

Who lifts his pinkie

Like I do on my bow

Which I shouldn’t

Do as I’m no

Baroque violinist

Without my vibrato

Though I prefer it

It makes everything

Emphatic and just

Goes to show

Everything I know

Informs me like a wellspring

A big, hollow gulch

I close my eyes and picture

In an act of self-soothing

Not believing in it

Or for that matter

Anything at all
