POEM ABOUT LOVE
Edward Shenk 

don’t look it in the mouth;
a lover’s love or gifts at christmas,
  when birds fly south 

there are 2
turtle doves
falling for it
at the zoo

they do not speak or coo,
they don’t look it in the beak—
  they fuck & do not go extinct


I DREAMED THAT GOD WOULD BE FORGIVING
Bunny Rogers

Three charming rooms talk back and forth
enlisted for their strength and stamina
Together five sisters of addiction grow up the walls 
entrusting there is no world 
in which paranoia could save the two of us
Threat is infinite and jovial
Courage is a wink and a nod
Your spine is a joke
Your vertebrae are stacked snowballs
That will melt as your joints do every hour without fail
In this cruel, hot world
Where every root vegetable shrinks your dick
Where we wake up and go to work to laugh at your dick
