My Wobbly Bicycle, 157

I’ve been gathering and arranging poems to see if they make up a book, yet. A whole nother level of attention.

When you’re on drugs, that all seems pretty floaty and wonderful, like a warm pool. I watched the Kavanaugh hearings. Correction. I’d missed Christine Blasey Ford’s interview, so I was watching...
