Drown

Diandre Prendimano



I have no time to escape or lie down before sunset.

I didn’t say the words but knew
they were placed within me
like a bouquet of branches

I’m the same quality here
as I was by the sea.

Sometimes at night I play poker with myself
other times my lungs fill up with snow

and still at other times I walk
and meet new people.

My neighbor has a bijon terrier
and swears it barks with a French accent.

Drown it I think
drown that now.
