Table Dream.

In July, a man gave me his melancholy,
which comes from the old French,

which means profound sadness.
EAT is a show

where you put a mirror
in front of your dinner table.

The laugh track is muted.

Anger looks like a friend
in a shawl in the afternoon.

She bites at your elbow
when she's hungry.

Gross china doll of a thing-her
arms slosh around in her clothes.

Night full of ash. Night full of burnt papers.

Weep at the opening of the doorway.
Weep at the opening of a song you never heard before.

Little woman pulling her right hand to her chest
and pushing it away.
