Forrest Oliphant

Prom King


Fresh air of a grey day
         Blackened buttered toast
  Sweet earl grey tea
      Sore hips and thighs
   Big canine head on my belly
Supine tap water sips
     Smokey sweet kisses
  Smashed pot in the street
      Strange nonpropositions
   Dance's sweat
           Swigs of vladimir
  Swipe of mascara
       Pops of bubble wrap skirt
     Tickle of feather boa
             Dabs of concealer
 Sips of cosmos
         Orange shortbread
      The taste of red
