YOU KNOW WHAT by Parker Tettleton

It's almost a holiday
It is already in some time zones
It will never be in many places
I spend time how I like to sometimes

I want to say nothing
I'm working on a book about it
I'm honest when I say nothing
I mean to be silent forever

Then it can't keep up
Wanting itself kept
The way it is held
When it feels like it lasts


Parker Tettleton's work is featured in &/or forthcoming from Gargoyle, The Destroyer, A-Minor, Deluge, & Word Riot, among others. His grocery shopping collection GREENS is available from Thunderclap! Press. More or less is here.
