Bulletin / Recycled dreams by Nicki Heinen


Be clad in polka dots

scholar’s hat thrown


remembering the times of drought

waiting for something, anything real


water filling the cracks

of the morgue gone by


tell me, I said, of your distresses

tell me, I said, of your loves


isn’t it the terrible thing

that is over, goodbye


good news, I said, it is over

good news, I said, it is done
