M.A.N.I.F.E.S.T.O. by Zachary Lipez


O.K. The feeling in your
stomach before you kiss
someone for the first time
the hottest day of the year
the refrigerator is broken
so you’d best use all the ice
before it turns to slush
playing Boggle blindfolded
and all the letters keep spelling
champagne and oral sex
chewing on wires to get to
other wires
just two feet away is foreign shore
write about politics if that’s
what you’re good at
if you think what I write
lacks ambition, you’re
just not kissing
the right people

This is my friend Zack! He is 100% awesome and very sound on Jane Eyre.
