For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn


Hemingway didn’t mention a color.
These are violet. They catch the light
like a cat’s eye in the dark. They are too small

to make me feel
such big things–
as was she, in dream

after dream
after fucking dream–
until I stopped sleeping

all together.
Is there a scientific name
for an obsession with the imaginary?

Haha, clever joke.
Told by someone without the answer

skirting serious
talk, because Why
do you have to be so dark?
