ELLEN CREGAN #1: December

in snow and

pebble beaches

 

your tent zip has rusted

in rain, frozen shut

 

enveloped you in

scumpy firepit numb feet stink.

 

meanwhile, I read molly bloom’s

monologue over

 

seven times to

make it stick

 

peel bedding back

like the skins of grapes

 

with dreams of boxing day

bubble and squeak

 

a frosted countryside

to blend into I

 

dodge mayonnaise

potato salad sweat

 

ferment to the squeal

of a ceiling fan.
