rich white people don’t give a fuck 
my sweater brings you joy

I am at the cafe crushing on death
you invite me to a movie screening

I am sending your unborn child emails 
they are an extension of me

on the balcony I risk a $2000 fine
amnesia and impulsivity, decaf flat white

I can withhold this info
I say yes even though it’s inadvisable 

if Vicky is working turn espresso machine on
go to work and make the rounds

linger and love getting dressed
to walk home in snow

when the laser hits me 
you are still there
