Man Years

 


Excerpt:

LIKE SUGAR LIKE

I can spell anesthesiologist but not marvelously

—blimp—

Meaningful meaning

+

meaningless meaning

‘Everyone’ is always an exaggeration

The story of a student who walked onto the field a man

and left a woman

The story of faux bois

fake boy

don’t prick your finger

I make slices of cake

“…think that sugar is more important than simile”

The heart is a dog—do you feel that?

Salmonella-infested waters

he doesn’t know what happened to her bod—

He paid her killers to kill her

rather than with pangas

he was spared

because he was =

“It’s not a negation—it’s a celebration.”

Who eats who

like a government child

Man years

bad moons

no mores
