— Christine Le
The guitarist, in the midst of notes, turns
of the ambulance,
and plucks his string a little more painfully.
This is when Love is not something you do
and not something you give, but something you are.
It is when they’re talking about
who Kim Kardashian
and you bring up the Somalia that’s drying like a desert
that no sky wants to rain on.
But you give a rain.
You rain when your heart pours,
and you’re trying to get theirs to pour
what you’re doing is squeezing lemons
that don’t realize how much juice they have.
