Today's poem is by Rachel B. Glaser


which means I can die at any moment
I'm the most graceful thing in the grocery store
I have several beautiful heads

all the body parts
and people hunt ine
I'm attached to a rod with a hair clip

love me and don't fear me
take me from the supermarket
make me the fanciest part of your lame living room

show everyone you're responsible
that you have a lover
a tall feminine plant

fuck me when no one's looking
if my manual tells you to
if we are both high on plant food
if your girlfriend's on her period

I know the Creator and the future
I am like the mean queen in a movie
but also the only beauty left in the world
