JASON REYNOLDS

writin' and whatnot

Day 11 of 30

SO-CALLED Love be possessing people

making people believe they've been made

better by being possessed and pushed deep into the pockets of

some so-called lover

good for when they need the touch of a tchotchke or a reminder to pretend that the snow in snow globes be real

like you some kinda rabbit's foot some kinda cheap finger trap some kinda thing to be had by someone other than you

like you ain't got pockets of your own
