This is why we can't have anything nice
I want to get a bat and go haywire inside the house I grew up in
I want to break all the expensive vases and chicken figurines
I want to smash the jade statues into tiny little pieces
I want to shatter the chandelier
I want to pull all the exotic plants out of their pots
I want to kick in the antique table
I want to rip apart the fur coats
I never liked any of this stuff
I never liked how much money was pissed away on this stuff
I never liked how someone else had to work two jobs so we could have this kind of stuff.

It rings like the hollow of an echo
where the tree was chopped,
and I will follow with
and sunken neck,
Following the equator of order
beside the anarchic
cover the urn with her blanket
