Adam Tedesco Truly

Bad things happen to bad people

I tell myself and feel a flattening

as most of what I am loses one dimension

or another while reading this blueprint


Beyond good and evil there’s reasons why

the work of sorting never ceases


Bleeding the rabbit

for the purified antibody

of indifference


That’s what I call the process of remembering

the shed amidst this warren of flowers

that all of my love crawls in and out from

underneath autonomy, a rock bottom


Twice a year with a toothbrush I clean the floor

because like owls, owning viciousness

ignored in favor of their adoration

your god might not be dead yet
