Five Poems

Jesse Prado



My last reading was okay

I read about my dating

And being an artist



This guy working here hits the head of every doorway he walks through

Like I just heard it

And looked up

And sure enough



Hella fell off this week seems like

Mentally and


Probably physically too



Found myself


Flipping everyone off

At the front desk



Have a goodnight

You will

Unlike me
