by Chris McCreary

Among you in tough skins two sizes too tight an ill fit at best it gets wedged when excelsior isn’t even my own to have known members only as knocked off copy not my beautiful cadre my coat of arms an extra letter bastard born beneath the fleur-de-pity pizza party my alpha beta blocker cue card fluffing for the upwardly mobile coterie.

Four such lovingly doctored scarves palettes spun from mothers’ extra yarn each iter- -iving prior iron dekeened we week knee low totem shrunk to fit some poor slob’s lecture hall hot by cotton candy body shots precursing other up-jumped prophets gone on orgone envy nerving what ails these dieties ohming alcoves into ebbing flow full metal spirit animus means enemy of my enemy squats on the same Gobot’s mouth & where there’s monkshood there’s mildew for your pretty copper top caught a-titter at gramma’s bodice ripper.

Chris McCreary is the author of [ neüro / mäntic ], just out from Furniture Press, as well as three previous collections of poems.
