2 poems by Jordan Hoxsie

hygiene

 


crisp apple hand soap
draining in the sink after
the crucifixion

 

 


californication

 


destiny is what white people
whisper at night
to bore their demons to death


to keep the sheep fed
and plump with confidence


it is the feather left
on their tongues


after they fuck another angel
in their dreams


after they crowdsource heaven
to look like a snowstorm
large enough to bury their hatchets


after they come so hard
a bald eagle is the new centerfold


scalping prices on the next plantation
on the new luxury swimming pool
that was once a glacier
