at false premises;
attach piece that
don't go together
because i like the look
of a lopsided puzzle.
others shop stores
but i pick apart dried flowers
and cheap stuffed animals,
in fluffy white debris,
dry stems piled so high
they give my legs rashes.
when insanity dies,
i try to staple back my favorite duck
only to realize one of his eyes is missing
and i lost his beak looking for it.
i count highlighters like blessings-
pink, purple, yellow, pink, orange, yellow-
until i, too, run out of color.
