THE HOTEL LIFSHIN IS NO LONGER SERVING MEALS

or, anything else.
She stopped serving
men whose women were
in law school and
wanted to shipwreck
in her thighs decades
ago. Now she's had
it, being a stopping
off place for those
looking for housing,
wild to see the
Smithsonian, or
driving coast to
coast. She doesn't
want to have to
cook or talk. She
no longer has room

in her bed or her
kitchen except for
poetry books and
the cat. She's done
enough charming,
doesn't want to
vacuum your
hair from her
rug. Having you
breathing the air
in her house
makes her feel as
suffocated as whole
families climbing
each other in
gas chambers for
the last breath that
wasn't death




NUTMEG MADONNA

too much of her
and you hallucinate
