My Cocaine Honey

Help. He burns a third
Sonoma. Better luck next time.

I wash his Jersey blue.
Bite the lime, baby.

Tequila Eye teaches me the floor.
Hello, Kitty. Here.

Undress my salmon skin,
boxer to body.

Wave Daddy bye. Say it
tender for me.

Peter Rabbit’s burning
our garden. Crisp cabbage,

honeydew: Begin here, he says
by a wall of posies.

I am leaving.
I, I, I.
