i am an unlicensed poet:
when we begin to live again, give me a call.
so before i swallow the sun my mother said this is home and i don’t
believe it. the cicadas come to me and make homes out of my eye sockets, teach my body to make warmth in the winter time. when i was in first grade my father didn’t
buy me silly bands. i painted hairties over with gold sharpies instead, i’ll trade you one...

journal entries from the wk of nov 23

FREE WRITING

today in bio at 2:53 i learn to peel the sky like a loquat. the yellow wallpaper on my walls threatens to fold itself up in search of a breath of fresh air;
it is already puckering at the seams. this is a room i have never lived in and now this space is borrowed, as if to say here is a country;
the lines on the wood floor are borders. my tongue rips into quarters so i think i...

sunshine baby

FREE WRITING

in june of 1979, when our edges run like mango juice down chins, she dunks me into the ocean and i come up with my nose dripping. on her tongue there is a paper crane, electric blue, like my favourite flavour of sour candy. she drips melted wax all over my feet, tips the can of soda into her mouth. i catch the tail end of a prayer, sneak glances as she slips out of her swimsuit. her collarbone is...

i am mistaken: in this dream, we have no need for Bodies. i want to tell her i think there is dried wax on the dining table. she sees it too, reaches with an index finger to pick at it until blood rises at the edges of her nails. her legs are hairy through her mesh socks, and when she laughs the pitcher of sweet tea tips over. i am mistaken: perhaps we have traded our forms for boys. we...

dinner

FREE WRITING

on days like this, you curl into the couch, fat
thighs sticking to plastic covers. the sunlight hollows your bones,
smokes your hair until it hangs straight on the curtain rods. 
you weigh fifty-two kilos now,
lips oily as the sweat on your brow. ama passes you a tub of
lychee and you peel, the juice spurting out under your unskilled fingers. 
the cockroaches clean it up. tonight we eat well, she says. the
shi mu yu stares at...

h as in half, 
as in digging my nail into the white rabbit milk candy
my chinese teacher gives me on new years, as in
sucking the sugar out and spitting it into the trash
like that act of sacrifice will melt the pudge off my ribs

h as in here,
what i am sure of. stay put, back pressed
against dried herb isle,
careful your knees don’t get burned from the
motorcycle exhaust pipes, black fungus
slipping down throats will...

I,

FREE WRITING

After Said, I by Wina Puangco

toe-tap of black boots on sticky wood floor, I
think there is much I do not know yet, I
think that there is much I can learn and not enough time anymore. you see I
have been considering getting veneers. I
look into the mirror and see me, but with shark teeth, 
filed down into sharp points
there are words lodged into my throat lately and I
am getting tired of swallowing over them....
