npm: 3

For this poem, I used one of Rachel McKibbens' writing exercises. This one to be exact:
exercise#20




04/03
title: grocery list discovered between bookmarks in the hitchhiker's bag(left by accident in topeka)

in pocket of the moon,
misshapen
heavy
quiet

thoughts of ugliness
pure messiness
grin of gray hair
green for things i want/need
more minutes for slow hand meandering

monster made of children bones and charred trees
empty space where _________ should be
fruit in fridge
clean-pressed shirt
fever
of snake
in the sun
singed edge bread
knots
of rust.
