TWO POEMS
BRANDON SCOTT GORRELL


I AM SATISFIED WITH THESE LAY'S ORIGINAL

i have stolen over six cigarettes from keith today

i have a small figure of hulk hogan, it clutches my lamp

i want to clutch my lamp

as i was typing a small piece of chip fell out of my mouth

it feels depressing

this poem was supposed to address something else


I HAVE CHANGED THE COLOR SCHEME OF MY GMAIL TODAY

i have gone to the store

to the post office

i have made plans to go drunk bowling

i have been asked to do a reading in august

my book comes out in june

i have designed the jacket

i designed the jacket a month ago

i am in my new apartment

my landlord has given me a pamphlet about mold

i have stared at the pamphlet with a vague sense of alarm

which eventually turned into permanent, low-level anxiety

and physically manifested in my body spending more time in locally-owned coffee shops with free wireless internet access

thus stimulating the local economy
