Mudlark No. 49 (2013)
My belly is rounder now than ever before
Like out of Miro
All belly and head and foot round
And pendant between

What popped out is trying to pinch me
Into new awareness of motivation
There was a kid in seventh grade I should have punched out
And the ex-roommate I wish I’d beaten

I told Jacob to punch that kid in the nose
No he said I don’t want to hurt him
You’re right I said you can’t do that
But you have to stand up for yourself

Or he’ll just keep picking
