The Cruellest Month


Sparrows speak spiritedly for one
full minute, then silence themselves.

It's tax day. My period has come
a week early, and something in my mouth
tastes like blood. A tooth
has cracked like an acorn, spilling

terraces, hickory pricking the nose.
Skins brown in constant sun, absorbing
filaments of radiation. Tomorrow,
the threat of freezing rain.

Sexist high-school assholes.

Casual marijuana use linked to brain changes -- "Gregory Gerdeman, a biologist and neuropharmacologist at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Fla., said he has no reason to doubt the new study's findings but worries generally about marijuana research funded by federal agencies, like the Office of National Drug Control Policy, which is charged with limiting drug use."
