when I moved to Philly,
I developed a good working
relationship with every Whole Foods
in the area.
I wore noise cancelling
headphones and an olive green

I want to be remembered for the
ways I never starved,
you are only as
sick as your secrets.

no, I am only as sick
as my father,
but say it out
loud in self checkout.
with imprudence.
with temper.

and never tell them anything.

“the secrets”
