Kyle Hemmings- A Poem

Homeless Like You

Desire comes and goes in that many flavors.
But she still feeds flat fish on Sundays
leaves a wishbone in every lover's bed
refuses to have safe sex in a sweat-stained dress
cries in the backseats of sputtering taxis,
believes god is a bad character actor
who can't get a job in Hollywood.

Kyle Hemmings is a what? A moon cake. A subversive astronaut. A mama's boy with claws. Kyle Hemmings is who you want him to be. He has been published elsewhere.
