Poem Per Day/ April 6th, 2011 – Jesse Bradley

YOU CAN’T SPELL MONOGAMY WITHOUT “MONO”/ Jesse Bradley

I’m shadow puppeteering
our next kissing contest,
funded by the grant
of your lower lip.

My hands collect your back
like taxes. I want more fingers,
toes, freckles as abacuses
to count your return.

Your mouth auto corrects
my body language. Your voice
hangs like streamers. I walk
like cursive.
