Sinead O'Connor

Don't go calling her
a one-hit wonder.
She had a ton
of incredible songs, and one
just happened to be
even though it was a Prince cover.

Sinead also had a great set of
principles. She ripped up
a picture of the Pope on live TV--
a screw-you to the Vatican
for its handling of abuses.

She shaved her head and wore billowing blouses
as if to say Focus on my music, assholes.

Rachel Springer
Does your tree have a leaf that’s simple? If foliage is a needle, there’s work, and then there’s work. There’s a peach, juicy and oh so cheap. I couldn’t help myself, I let you in, major projection, leaf entire … fingers unevenly balanced, palmately, pinnately. There’s a compound leaf, star shaped, angular. Ah, the major ashes, walnut, butternut, pecan, mulberry, sassafras! Sickle-shaped, lobed or unlobed. With If Yes, there’s grinding coffee, and there’s whoring. OR, OR, OR. Are all your needles linear? See teeth visible under lens. Look, two white lines. (What do they mean?) Whether you gesture here or there affects me, and how hard. Branches bear spur-like fascicles, tiny flowers. We are berrylike, bluish, toothed around the margins, smooth along the veins. We are elliptical, oblong, glaucous with bloomy cones. With suction cups, diamond cross-sections, what the fuck? If so, you probably have a larch. You probably have a cedar! If so, a juniper. A pine. You most probably have an elm.
