Because I can’t be -Dorothea Lasky

Because I can’t be anywhere
I am drinking a thick and viscous liquid

Dark red and pulsing
Of the tiger from which I came

Essence distorted in
So as to make the idea

So that I was a capitalist
And made a hundred businesses of my sadness

So that I made resource from my tears
Either ocean or flat

Knowledge or a demon
The house that still portends

Angry mouth
Angry hole

The black hole where no one dares to go
So what words as if

As if it were anything
As if I could look at you and love you

And that I could mean anything
Or be anything
