You Can't Smother A Person With A Pillow

We begin the zoom call I only look at myself Most of me is taken up With the bedroom window I imagine a large Serpentine creature Of folklore at the window That only I can see I imagine a cassowary At the window next Then some boiled nudes A Texas blind salamander Without the moon There would be no nighttime There are some the size Of washing machines A friend sends me a message He doesn't believe in spacewalks He believes in three days at the gym Followed by loud reading
