poem to read on a fire

tomorrow all the people are replaced with tigers
& they don’t need coats
& there is more understanding, or less
& they are good at stringing music down their spines
& they breathe in small wisps
within the snowy cold
i took a tiger picture of a tiger lake and
hung it for you with the tiniest nail in the universe
the dollar stores are replaced with 99 cent stores, and so on
