money
Golda Fried

as we wait for the money to come
we eat peanut butter

as we wait for the money to come
you double park
and all these cars
honk through
the tight squeeze
and their shaking faces float by
and I have to act
like a dumb girl with a soda pop

as we wait for the money to come
you smoke more

I picture myself fainting
in previous apartments

as we wait for the money to come
I joke about having children

I feel guilty about buying a dress
two weeks ago

I let your friend take me out
for 2 for 1 beer

as we wait for the money to come
I feel like a helium balloon
visiting a sick patient

there are snores in the trees
instead of fruit
