Wallschlaeger’s Second Poem of the Month at TIE

by Jen Tynes

Nikki Wallschlaeger is poet of the month at The Inquisitive Eater; her second poem of August is up!

I throw salt over my left shoulder as
a protective gesture against the cops,
I wash my floors on Wednesdays with
rosemary oil to prevent slave recapture.
Kale voter suppression kale Bernie Sanders
kale New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina
kale I’m-in-no-hurry kale the finest excuses
chilled in aged arthritis black bone crystal…
