South Street
    after Kevin Young

is nothing to drink but tap water and whiskey

is two showers a day and nothing to say come lunchtime
because I already know what you’ve been up to

is showering with no curtains

is a mattress with no frame

is wondering if we’d be better as siblings
would I hate you or simply love truer, more honestly?

is you forgetting where I am
and me still being where I was left

is cigarettes reminding you of Seoul 

is cigarettes reminding my body how to breathe

is everything tending to remind us of something else
