Eyes with Tweezers

Greenhouse geography births, no shoes or rooftops
these blue doves all have obvious names and role-play
their text-based affairs, their skinny-legged jeans
go where the money is ignoring gray pig-tailed
fiction saves them surrounding all mental
security populations feel giant in blue sport
coats wearing voices, the neighboring constructions
of mañana mañana mañana ruffles peak from bands
no body can be, except when at a concert jumping
up hands flailing, all animals are when at the zoo
wearing last seasons, lions reach through prisons and hug
these mirrors siesta in this manor with doves who breathe to purr
