“Don’t resist counseling.”
“I resist everything but clown makeup and donuts.”
The family is finally gone so I inhaled
fourteen original snack sticks
read four hundred pages of terrible erotica
woke up on the wrong side of Jupiter
wondering about the death of another gelatinous year.
What’s a resolution?
How many miles to Planet Fitness?
Why peanut oil?
I wrote flash fiction featuring Tom Petty and two days later he died.
I’m a witch
of some kind.
