Day 28: 30 Days of Weezy for National Poetry Month

"there goes that monster" 
 -Lil Wayne

Beauty Selections

slumped outstare a moaning, this gristle torn 
put song under black wing, a typical cutting
look mama, a roaring
What I said was I hardly know you anymore
almost seated camera side, glanced
that myth: you ate it up & again
how do you let go of someone
who falls into you
urgent urgent this morning's whirr
case studies of girls who seize 
who pose the pretty laced set
take it this dollar bill
the boy has a name for everything
the knots, the loops
a just imagined below the surface
ruined decay of where we break apart
the way water crushes you as you go deeper
the way your own body turns against you
as you rise : a calling in separate tongues
