Today's poem is by Jordan Davis

Evasion of Privacy

When they ask me can they just be honest,
The sweetest place I can go is out to
The eight-track, line in, breathe out. Anyway
You go, always all-time, flash cards
I watched come up over the hills
Then go behind a cloud until dusk,
A word that settles on marigolds
With intent to bioluminesce. I have that
Get up and be there feeling myself,
And as long as I can remember it's
Sent me out to the arcade, unmoored,
Maybe in a fedora, who knows. Just
Leave me alone means come home
And love me, I thought everyone knew.
