Purdey Lord Kreiden – one poem

 

DAYS ARE LONGER NOW

Days are longer now.
Like glued together cocoons,
I am wet with withdrawal in my underpants
From all the fat tigers I’ve beaten off and
Skinned with the pastel wave of a daydreaming
Their flesh glowing in my stomach from the outside of my skin
Like jealous magic of herbs and lemon leaves
In my stomach sloughing and translucing
With all the beautiful lines I’ve snorted
After dinner, one for the children I’ve made
And one for the elders that made me make
The children outside of me
Raised their feet like raisins to the sky
And their blood gurgled up

I am human kind,
A small protoplasma of cloud entangled
To the hard-on of the evening sun
That impregnates the smallest trees
To give birth to a wind, a wind violet
And like jade astraes of wings
Your slashing their heads with your flaccid penis,
Then their brains become the sunset
Of this evening sun covered in wing
Of sperm

 

 

Purdey Lord Kreiden became Miss America and pursued her dream to become a veterinarian. Her book CHILDREN OF THE BAD HOUR is forthcoming by Ugly Duckling Press in September 2014.
