Remove and Clean the Parts
What if I want to be bitter, an oily
slow brew? How to clean
the coffee maker. Just vinegar
and water. I have a friend who drinks
apple cider vinegar and maple syrup on ice.
And on every sidewalk the ice is asking
me to join it, and not politely. How not
to slip when getting the mail.
My dad broke almost every bone
in his right hand. How to encourage
a healthy gut. My sister’s fiancé
had a dream the baby was a girl, he just
knew. The girl’s eyelids thin
as coffee filters. You mailed
me grounds from the local coffeeshop
so my apartment could smell
like your mouth.
