Bri ties a blue GET WELL balloon
to my IV pole, dumps
from her shopping bag
a box of pink Peeps bunnies,
rhinestone flip-flops,
a puzzle book,
a whiskery stuffed mouse.
“It’s amazing what you can find
at the ninety-nine-cent store.
Care for a four-month-old Peep?
Your mom said you can’t have
any food, but everyone knows
Peeps don’t qualify.”

when they clutch around the neck of
someone she wants to live-

It doesn’t always work – Ik now

I decided 16% would be a nice number for today’s Teaser Tuesday.

This baby hears
more Japanese here-
Obaachan’s fussing about Jiichan
leaving tea rings on the table
bruising tomatoes on shop errands,
forgetting something on her list

the tv blaring
recipes,
drama,
and news all day long.

I am the black flamingo.
The black flamingo is me
trying to find myself.

the king and the queen.
I am my own wicked
witch and fairy godmother.
