‘It hardly occurs to us to question how the Pentagon’s mad military scenarios about near-peer wars could indeed end in nuclear annihilation.’
His cat mourned better than I, lying
on her side for weeks across his room’s threshold
Once we sneaked out of a slumber party
tiptoed onto an icy bridge
still in our babydoll pajamas and
froze our prissy asses off

There is no lasting happiness
in this world, only
particles of happiness,
transitory as a fragrance
or a falling leaf
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets into your list, put that in!
