i refuse to wear the shoes i wore to the hospital
to eat non-organic berries
to piss in bars

i won’t make decisions on the full moon anyway
when my bed is red
with my dizzy eyes

i refuse to wear the shoes i wore to the hospital
to shake hands with excess lotion
to drink red wine

i’d rather drink the milk my mother made me
when she was pregnant with my brother
and i, infantsick

i refuse to wear the shoes i wore to the hospital
i am the clammiest of hands
and far too many teeth

i wouldn’t remove them at the front door anyway
appease a man in a jacket
or look away
