by Anna Gault

thriving
often makes bees die

like when you shut the door to keep the heat in
and I battled nausea and
drank coppery College Station
water with two cupped hands

dry
in that Texas hotel room
one person in two beds

you put you tux on the sprinkler to be steamed
then left me when the getting was
southern, young, supple, and Greek
instead of thin and Midwestern
the way I like
