I look at the
as passable
as meg ryan

ur poems are
like these
pizza cakes,
rising like a boil
telling a girl
she smells nice
beside the plastic
box of watermelon bits
she looks at you
like that girl
in miss doubtfire
looking at robin
Williams dressed
as mrs doubtfire
my face is degrading
like a water hole
in an american
movie or something
