    Oh My God You Guys, I'm Fucking Thirty-Six Now
    Thirty-Six
    I Have To Like...Oh My God

    I'm officially too old to love, I feel like
    No one is even in love with me right now,
    which is garbage,
    okay some people are obviously but none of them count

  3. SOME GUY, KEATS PROBABLY: my god, sir knight
    what has happened to you?
    you look like some sort of lake without sedges
    a sedgeless lake
    if such a thing can even be imagined
    no sedges on you
    a sedgeless man

  5. When you dress in the
    same outfit by mistake, who
    is the one to change.

    Sometimes you’d rather
    watch the U.S. women’s soccer
    team than have sex.

    Whether this dolphin
    documentary is too
    triggering to watch.

  6. Before We Had Mirrors

    We looked for ourselves
    beneath the clouded surfaces
    of everything, back then.

  7. you know what god loves above all things
    what
    clean clothes
    how's that
    you know how like if a beggar came into your hall while you were eating dinner
    and if his leggings have holes in them or whatever
    grime
    you have him beaten and thrown out into the street
    I would?

    what
    there's three of him so they can all beat you up at once
    what?

    all of
    all three persons of him could whale on you pretty efficiently

  10. The Garden

    My father bends over the koi pond to count the fish,
    which are fewer now, dwindling in number.

    First it was the birds, then it was sickness,
    then age, something in the water—

    Then death settled in, comfortably,
    made up a bed and boiled pond scum for tea.

  11. I imagine Geach and Wallace in the lecture halls, in the libraries – the famous Radcliffe Camera at the Bodleian, maybe, not so different from the room where I read their work. They’re greedily soaking up Western literature. They’re searching for themselves, but they keep finding the same stupid story: a woman experiences a sliver of life, then kills herself because of a man.

  12. Anne Carson is a poet of perversities. By that I don’t mean that she writes graphically about sex (though she does) or that she makes art that is unseemly and difficult (though she does that too). What I really mean is that she works on the edges of what’s acceptable, in every book and genre in which she participates.
