Rinse Cycle, 2015

Artists filter

bad experiences

through their creative lens

to make life more bearable

which is why

I put your cat in the washing machine

because that cat

was a bad experience for me

and the washing machine,

ahem,

was my canvas,

which killed

your fucking shit-town of a carpet beast

and made you cry

and so

life, more bearable.

Shmike & Shmike

My ex boyfriend,

let’s call him Shmike,

is dating another guy named Shmike.

Which is vomit-inducing

but

hey

I’m happy for him.

Happy for the shmikes.

Which is why I’m writing this poem

because I’m just so fucking happy.

The Burn

“My cunt is on fire”

She read to the class from her diary

“OUCH HOSE ME DOWN”

A woman alone

hungrily clawing to be saved

screeching her inner laundry out at her students

How does one get to this point?

How does a person reach such inner hell

and frigid loneliness

to literally cry out for help

in the form of a fireman dousing her vagina in hose-water story?

but a better question would be,

why don’t they screen for origami teachers better?
