Tomorrow might be green birds and furious
I’m so furious and hungry sweating in fern-
like patterns hungry for something birdlike
but green I’ve been in headlocks I want to cry
tomorrow tomorrow is a word that means
peace I will be televised and Kentuckian sick
my head sick sick my head so many hawks
floating in anticipation.
