Kayti Lahsaiezadeh "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
