Triolet

 

Julia DiFiori, Oberlin College '20


Earrings makeup remover floss

burns bruises scars

fibonacci moss

table chair hi hello New Yorker gloss

cutting corners, cutting loss

our bodies guzzling like cars

bite once into apple and toss

wherever we are going must not be that far

 

Stretch marks freckles bug bite scratch

cleanse moisturize hydrate

bouquet of weeds seed pods ash

birthmarks tattoos flybuzz good catch

two whitestrips one day good match

two joints one evening stretched late

why the ones before us why us now

why anyone beyond us at this rate
