Poem-A-Day #33 : Tattooing a Reservoir on my Chest

Tattooing a Reservoir on my Chest
          - after Emily Kendal Frey

The water levels are the lowest they've ever been

A red kite in the sky signals fire over the horizon

Tons of concrete etches into the landscape

Here is a hanger - your coat - it's all shoulders

I hate tweed why do you own tweed the elbows are just so...

Place these straws in a U around my heart the blood needs to pool
