I love the universe/Pay my rent.

Location

The moon is surrounded.

I work in a diner by a ring of haze because I have to.

I stretch out

They are greasy and dirty

my arms, filled with greasy dirty men.

My span is so small next to the cooks who yell out to the women running by,

the span of the trees and the mountains that surround me.

Even though I am the only one that can hear them.

It is dark but Men come in.

I know the grass is green and

tell me I am pretty and full of life.

Apparently that is not enough.

 

The soil will soak up whatever rain the sky gives to get a decent tip.

I love the way they show me their nipple rings,

I feel so small in my place in the universe

they ask who I sleep with.

I love even the boy with freckles

the way I feel in my place in the universe

and nice eyes asks for my number.

I love one of the cooks who touches my shoulders

and my place in the universe

and asks me on dates.

and I am just trying to love the universe.

Pay my rent.
