Poem – Ryan Mills

I don’t know
I’ve got so much
But especially when we talk

About the jeans

We’re wearing

I’ve got so much

Pictures hang on the wall

But won’t stay

In my head

& it comes as no surprise, then,
that I want to redescribe the way
Things are, & compete with this

I don’t know


So I get to showering
