The Situation 23

you’re half the diameter of phobos

and a little farther from me you’re

starlike and brighter than venus you’re

plagiarism admit it you’re the protagonist

antagonist you hang around student unions

stealing poetry from american girls

from girls you barely knew ten years ago

one of them is in wyoming now reading

the news waiting for yellowstone to go

off one of them says caldera like

a forbidden word like if she says it too

often she might have never existed
