Poem: Say Cheese

Say Cheese

I use spider blood for ink
after hurricane season
just in time for winter,
the season notorious
for dressing inappropriately
at parties. No solace for
the solstice who hems and haws
and goes person to person
for a picture,
for proof
that she’s a good friend,
a loyal friend,
a good person,
and on and on to the next person and the next
“Let me get a picture with you,”
all night long until
everyone is selfied out.
