We Can’t Get Past This


A Twenty Minutes poem.

We Can’t Get Past This


I cut the waistband
of the sweatshirt.
The sweatshirt now embarrassed
refuses to submit
still riding up over my stomach no I did not
did not gain weight
the sweatshirt shrank
the dryer is too aggressive.
I’m sick of this whole crowd and I’d like some new acquaintances, please.
