four cartons of strawberries — Shayna Hodkin

when it was just a flu in china i should have held her
longer    bite-sized chocolate geshmakt   microwaved eggs
zeigezint    there are still a few good things

   persian rice xanax phish at the garden
   hot pizza grilled cheese empty beaches
   cacti cold apples grandma on the other
   end of the phone

when I woke up the saccharin headache had faded

strawberries red-ripe in the fridge
