Too High and Too Blue In New Mexico

Even the outdoor furniture will burn you. Exhibit A: a hot pink rectangle below left kneecap.

The ants eat meat, like the body of a snail, in mere minutes.

Mothers still take daughters to the mall, where they dress them like themselves.


I used to follow my own thighs.

I went to AA for the friends, then walked right back out.

I bought floss and batteries in case the world ended.


In New Mexico: almost-rain.

A lavender full-mooned sky.

The back of your head looking like a little boy’s.


Nowhere can you cross a street.

Girls yell at me in Spanish.

The beer is too thick.


In another language

There is a word for being homesick

For a place you’ve never been.
