I Look For

Metaphors
Wrinkles and dried lips,
Moist hands and daisy perfume

Prose
Small talk and drunken humor,
News headlines and tombstone engravings

Symbols
Broken bones and paper cuts,
Spilled coffee and smashed cigarettes

Characters
One-night-stands and preachers,
Freckled gingers and drag queen mothers

Novels
Throbbing bedroom walls and freckled bananas,
Rotating laundry and the sweat of sex

Existence
Has minimal meaning
