No Child Will Choose It by Amy Beeder
Who would pick him over zebras
crowned with roses and the lover's bench,
but dead flat, feathers a bric-a-brac insult.
scrotum & the mermaid flecked
all pulling hard against the halter.
profile watching for locust.
will choose it; up close coarse-skinned as you'd think:
Amy Beeder teaches poetry at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Recent work can be found, or is forthcoming, in Poetry, Witness, American Letters & Commentary, and Prairie Schooner.
