18 September: Aries

 

Some say the night fell like an empire
Some rodeo rider
The neverending time before the deli opens

Let me reincarnate into a deli cat
Or subway rat let me never leave this place
And see my country again

Could’ve milked my
Sleep for cash
In the window the birds chirp

Same as in the porn I’m watching
The universe frotting and edging
Against nothing

To live alone
Woken by cars fucking
And listen to the microwave winds

Tears a blazin
And so very happy
Haven’t gone to sleep since last I was happy

So technically it’s still
Same old night we met
The crispy one I was born

Back when we were dinosaur and wore
Water of the Mountain
I didn’t have pussy yet

Just a wooden hole for sounds

 

Ana Božičević
Art History

Ana Božičević writes poetry, like the Lambda Award winning Rise in the Fall and the forthcoming Joy of Missing Out (Birds LLC), and works & teaches at BHQFU in NYC.

Following an inquiry into contemporary American poetry, the work of eleven authors will collide with the visual and performative output of as many artists. Throughout the evening, by way of a summoning of the text, the concealment of sense will disclose itself as one of the manifold peculiarities of poetry. This is the first of a series of iterations. Its second gathering will be played out on November 25th.
