Parker Tettleton – 3 poems

 

I Want To Be Your Grocery Store

You’re an accent
in the sitcom
of my vessels. 

Attic sex
is vaudeville;

windows dirty-
explicate
themselves. 

One shake
isn’t this
aisle’s amendment—

I’ve tripped
your meridian.

 

Eggplant

There’s no womb
            out of you
between my legs

flickering
below inches
of incandescent screen

blipping a shower
sans parents,
groceries

  

Sorry’s Insurrection

I’m sticking
to turning
sling days off 

beer with
a cap
long-loo
-king at keeps

after
quitting
the nothing
            that’s older
than me
