Post-Christmas Inventory | Laura Kolb

(1) Smoky sex with architects:
get the hang of cigarettes.

(2) Curled up in a coffee cup,
a dormouse just to warm your house.
He’ll be impressed you live half-dressed.

(3) And, you insist, domestic bliss.

(4 and Etc) Other useless things include:
six dogeared novels, and a cup-edge kiss,
photos of D—, with his vacation fish,
a gavel,
and a charcoal nude.
