Parker Tettleton – 2 poems


When Something Dies I Want To Get To Know It

In the middle of wherever we are we’re on a train with parents. There’s urine & brushes. The third sentence is legs begin how we cross ourselves. Furniture is still a destination.



Fresh Remote

The first sentence cautions another hotel room, waits for a green blink on a screen smaller than the other one—the other one doesn’t breathe a sound answering the asked. We consider one. The look out swallows the window. She responds & I respond & this sentence responds. It’s traveling. Why is quiet—where is a mask.
