i'm not cool enough for this city
everyone is non-monogamous
& wears hats & has awkward
angled haircuts. everyone is
asymmetrical & pretends to
not have money & pretends
to have money. everyone is
in debt. everyone is a burner,
everyone is antifa, everyone
rock climbs & goes to protests
& has ted talks on tap like dry cider.
everyone is scared & is clothed
in shields. everyone came from
a small town. everyone descended
from san francisco. everyone waits
for their online chipotle order
in an amorphous queue like
timid little mice wearing white
guilt vests. everyone is poly.
everyone is ethical. everyone
finds the best clothing at buffalo
exchange. everyone wants to
jump off the st johns bridge.
