Hand Basket
Kit Kennedy

Mom never prepared me
for going to hell.

Platinum hair
voice of cum
begging applause
dark lashes
& scarlet boa
can’t forestall
back side
of the mirror

(By the way
if you ever see me
in a sensible sweater
with cherry appliqués
shoot me
up)

I smell seed
take courage
bold booms
spilling semen
Turn up
Cry Me A River
promissory notes
in a hail storm
