Ask to Be Reseated

by Melissa Broder

Dirt coat blanket the universe
and I pillow asteroid
with pervasive sense
an explosion is missing
soothed by palm trees
nice trip to CVS
vanity reasserts itself
when pain subsides
I could build a theater
around your head
perform the violence island
I was never taught to latch
I was born
