—after Molly Brodak

I am a good mood.
I love birds and
think they should
kiss. I love men
and women and
whatever the ocean
is. I did not die.
I made a call
and I lived. 
It was the longest
life of my life.
I saw the birds
fucking. I saw
planes and
Ohio in love.
I held myself
by the pinky
finger. You
better love
what you say.
What you say
might live.
