As me 'n Lémon attempt to sleep,
The rickety old vent squeaks into action:
—BOOM BOOM BOOM KAPOW KACHING WEEEEE FBFBFBfbfbfbfbfbfbfbbbbbbbbbbb—
Filling our Happy Hospital double bedroom
with thick balmy uncomfortable heat.
“In dreams, I hang out with dead people; but
I always forget to ask them:
‘What’s it like on The Other Side?’!”
Tanner and Lémon are Detroit-based poets.
