things I left out

By | 1 August 2018

you steal other people’s stories, make yourself star
confess by email solipsistic, I know
you have the kind of eyes that put Isabella Rossellini
out of work in movies or so she alleges
smashed-avocado green cosmonauts
ski slope cheeks

you invent national tours
I’m pleased for you but when you concoct
the A3 sheet of paper on which to write the dates down
wouldn’t A4 do?

you are a goose for compliments
long-necked short-legged you follow them around
you like to make me jealous even
a cat will do
your texts lack stops and so leave me hanging

fact is, Einstein said it best
you are spooky action at a distance

sometimes I become you when you’re not around
