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
