Monday Poem: that season wasn’t fun by Sophie Sagan-Gutherz

I managed to get a bunch of poems from the talented Sophie Sagan-Gutherz, studying at Tisch at NYU. Miriam’s Well will be blogging one on several forthcoming Mondays. Enjoy!

that season wasn’t fun

Why can’t i wear shorts in the summertime?
Did he run or walk away?
Do the geese leave each other alone?
Why do i walk like a duck?
Why is the watermelon in my salad always weeping?
Who is drunk, a stagnant mistress?
And how come she’s a she?
Why does no mean convince me?
What if i don’t want to take a bath?
Why do strange men always swallow my sandals whole?
How come dad can spoil all the cold milk?
Where was the expiration date?
Where was the expiration date?
Where was the expiration date?
