Catching Up On the Poetry

what she was wearing
by Den­ver But­son, from illeg­i­ble address.

this is my sui­cide dress
she told him
I only wear it on days
when I’m afraid
I might kill myself
if I don’t wear it

you’ve been wear­ing it
every day since we met
he said

and these are my arson gloves

so you don’t set fire to something?
he asked


and this is my ter­ror­ism lipstick
my assault and bat­tery eyeliner
my armed rob­bery boots

I’d like to undress you he said
but would that make me an accomplice?

and today she said I’m wearing
my infi­deli­ty underwear
so don’t get any ideas

and she put on her ner­vous break­down hat
and walked out the door
