  Self Portrait as Rapunzel’s Hair   First, I was comb controlled, a straight-teeth, barely-banged mini pig-tailed temple. Today, I enter a hay thrasher for a braid machine. I cover myself in an acre of blue bows. I keratin, I frizz, I fuck him. Naked, he lays his breastplate aside and swims within me like […]

  The Branch Won’t Survive   Aspen catkins Shirley Temple curls are new, I guess, this delayed spring, dangling sere and old over water, and broken maple branches hang down, still red and budding.
