Shiner - Maggie Nelson


Carnegie Hall


I wake up growling apples and dirt

naked and stretched under a barn sky

I cannot recall how I hurt my right eye

Arch of vessels gone grape under the lid

An army of red ants, a cast of shadows.

Good God. My eye has gone weak. Simply

put, I walked into an opening door.

The world is constantly changing shape

very dangerous. Two desert tortoises

duke it out on Arizona soil. By morning

one’s always left belly-up to boil.

Now you roll around with a rock

and see what kind of bruise you can muster

Dolefulness, caprice, regret, trauma

My bicycle has two seats get on

Carnegie Hall

Sometimes in life you need a little help Big Daddy

Free to compose something without tragedy

I note the screech of a limousine, your Irish eyes farewell!

Or Wilkommen! To timid rain, a ripple

on the flag of humiliation

All-beef dogs and luggage of innovation

Oh cross navigate puddles and disciplinary figures

I could mail myself as a violet

Recur as a nutritionist—


A beer’s better than a woman because it don’t get jealous

Shiny erect leg—a fake!

A jewel, a peach, hand in pocket.
