“goose shit,” by Maria Giesbrecht

Apr 20th, 2022 | By | Category: Poetry

there’s a man in the park saying it’s been a while since he’s seen
a pretty girl open a book
and before I have time to curse his soul
to the depths of Hades
I laugh a little
it’s mid July and hot girl summer—
you’ve been there

but the conversation wears old like wallpaper and sooner
than later I regret the hello but
I’m just grateful
it’s not February / thank god I
get to watch him wipe out in some
goose shit on the way out
