And My Knee

OEDIPUS THE KING OR BURGER KING

I think it’s exponential,
But I don’t know,
When it comes to wanting more.


I KNOW A GAME WE CAN PLAY

Everybody lines up.
Then the first two step forward
And they battle.


MAHMOOD

We tried to tell him
But he wouldn’t listen.


SHOULD BE

As far as I know.


MY CHANNEL

Hey everybody.
Thank you all so much.
Thank you so much.


SOME SMUDGING

A saint with blood on her hands.


AND MY KNEE

My knee the last couple days.

I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, by Erika L. Sanchez

“...like she’s ready to stab someone.”
“...looking like I worship Satan”
