Tuesday · Matthew Borczon

she thinks
can pick
your perfect
pet and
that the
moon is
slowly sinking
towards earth
from the
sky and
she shoots
pool with
one hand
because her
father lost
an arm
before he
taught her
the game
she thinks
she can
read the
future in
dreams and
she is
certain that
fake tits
won't make
her any
more money

not in
these Pennsylvania
strip clubs

Matthew Borczon is a Navy Corpsmen and Afghanistan veteran living in Erie, PA with his wife and children. His fifth book, Body Bag, is forthcoming from Nixes Mate.
