Dear Jon,


They stack

the bones

on shelves

tibula with tibula

femur with femur

skull with skull

terra firma


Down the road

they clear the way

for a new building

there is uranium

messing with her bowels


Oh Jonny

I can't be where you are

and you can't be here

and I don't know why

anyone would be


Oh Jonny!


When we speak French

you are here with us

like a parenthetical

casings in the face

a fifteen minute video


I kick you
