Marian (runaway sentence.)



Marian writes poems and otherwise uses her words at her blog,

runaway sentence.

help me, erica jong
by marian

yesterday my name was snidely green
today it's guardedly optimistic: requiring external validation
my real name is mama mama mama
tomorrow it will be Bellowing My Poems From That Rooftop
my secret name
is tender roots
quaking
toward a half century
wondering
how i got here.
