CLUSTER
David Tomaloff
i.
the elephant, the lion,
&the scarecrow—

how we traded our hearts
for the flesh-colored soil

ii.
upon our shoulders,
the trembling hands of the forest

,  &how all we could muster was
everything &tomorrow

iii.
how we folded ourselves
into clusters

of average little bombs

Flowerpots for Bukowski

I want to pee in the sink.
But you cannot do that.
Why not?
I will pee right now in your sink.
It is not possible for you,
why don’t you understand
it is a male thing.
I will launch a protest
Listen love, why don’t you do something
more creative, use the flowerpots instead.
