Issue 14
A Governer for Your Flippancy

Say heart, say heart on your sleeve, say you become
      a better person every time you leave this room.

Say you once fell asleep in this chair. Say you dreamt
      the one you loved tried to reach out, and say you spent

half your life trying to call back. Admit you hated
      the work: start with yourself, start in this space, start

by pulling the curtains back and say heart, say palate,
      say purpose, say lust. Say there are hundreds like you

who ache. Feel the weight on your sleeve. Look at it
      under any light. Say match, say candle, say forty watts.
