Day 11 of 30

SO-CALLED

Love be
possessing people

making people
believe they’ve been made

better by being possessed
and pushed deep into the
pockets of

some so-called lover

good for when they need
the touch of a tchotchke
or a reminder to pretend
that the snow in snow globes
be real

like you
some kinda rabbit’s foot
some kinda cheap finger trap
some kinda thing
to be had
by someone other
than you

like you
ain’t got pockets
of your own
