I AM / AN ALIEN MAYBE SPRAYED WITH HUMANNESS *

Uncategorized — evelyn @ 6:22 am

Hi, Somebody. Sometimes I feel like I’m wearing a vest when I’m not wearing a vest, does that ever happen to you? And then I remember, breasts! Today I am awake, it is 9:07am, I am going to go to the farmer’s market to buy carrots so we can make kimchi. The thing I’m noticing about taking care of land is that I can feel, in my body, its changing conditions. My lips are cracked and my hands are dry. When it’s windy for me, something outside the concept of wind, yet very much like wind, sweeps across the cotyledons. That’s like a leaf embryo. Later I’ll go to the garden and spread the rain that’s contained by 4 white clouds.

*part of a line from Bernadette Mayer’s Poetry State Forest

  1. Breasts are like vests, from within? What a revelation!
