His, Hers

by Brittany Leitner

I think I cursed my own bed
By buying “She, She” pillows
Instead of “His, Hers.”

I didn’t want my bed to think
It needed a man
They’re only good for one thing

He’s no use to me in the morning:
Comments that my light fixture
Falls from the ceiling

Into a bowl shape — like a tit
And asks me why I need the AC to sleep.

I feel his arm barely around me
I look at the great breast in the sky

"It’s New York," I say.

The Change of Seasons

By Brittany Leitner

Sometimes being tucked into
A light jacket is just the thing
I need to feel like I am making
Things happen for myself.

It’s quite a lucky walk I take
From my apartment to the train,
To my job, where New York City
People are expecting me.

Nothing is happening this week,
So I keep doing little things for myself;

I walk to my desk with breakfast
Thick croissant sandwich

Egg oozing in the middle
Not having to stir my coffee in front of everyone

Because someone stirred it for me.
God, I know there is not much else

That I need. I know I’ve
Asked for the change of seasons,

And thanked you for the bad days
But still, who am I to ask

For a hand, on the good weather days,
And just one more thing

Quote
Together with my struggles and hardships, these experiences gave me what I believe to be one of the most important skills a person can possess, not only in general but particularly in public service: the ability to compassionately understand another person’s point of view, even — and especially — if it differs from your own.
Wendy Davis, from her memoir, “Forgetting to be Afraid”

To me, love always looks like
a girl gripped to his arm
And the man staring in the
opposite direction

What do you do when the sound goes all squirrelly in the house, but still works fine in the monitors?  Well, you bring the whole crowd up on stage with you, that’s what you do. 

Thanks Cincinnati!  That made for a magical night!

I want to have intelligent conversations with you in spite of being drunk, not because we are drunk.
I don’t know how to get by without at least a little bit of pure, evil aggression.
Your family is not like my family but we are both hurt from it.
I always seem to be wanting guacamole and avocados in general.
Us can only be kept alive by timing.
It makes all the decisions. It decides if we live or die. Like the father introducing his daughter to the family handgun.
It’s all a circle. It all moves in a circle.
