april 19

if i had a say in how the world spun today 
i’d power centripetal force to make the one hundred euros 
come, to the nigerian prostitute leaning outside my residence, 
from anywhere other than the penis of some traveling business man with a blue jacket. 

i never know what to speak other than hello as i pass, 
but she called out to me as i continued down the road 
so i turned and said, you just have to trust that this is all going to get better some day, 
and she simply answered, “i hope so.”
