FOUR: excerpt of BAVEUSE by Sara Sutterlin

poems from BAVEUSE
by Sara Sutterlin

 

1995

Pine scent, backseat of
a Toyota
Two dresses;
both velvet, one crushed
saying Merry Christmas!
and having affairs

 

 

My hands grieve for
your gentle enthusiasms
Every morning
I am heavy with contradictions 

Sometimes, but rarely,
the Night is fast

 

 

Crowned with pity

God is chaos
and so
I <3 God 

Little deaths begin
to pile up
inside me,
inside you 

I was a
tender object
living in your house
