evening: spent | Kay Are


sorry     we are

cash only            at the guggenheim

uninterested in the

guggenheim     nothing lies there

only circles circling

the years lie

in the air ahead and you

catch them, writes my academic

crush from downtown

in a text I can’t read without a US sim card

                        she’s listing

with a cello

the words birds say gloss glyph

gank galah     how her

body opens


and closes as she plays

             hair tumbling

late heat into loose

glass, park blossoms


as bluebottles

over the steps
