Interview by Jordan Kapono Nakamura
I want this job because
it sounds like something I could do
and I’m hungry, physically.
I have extensive experience
in studying what water says as it plummets.
Yes, I can carry more than 35lbs, but what
does that have to do with anything?
I’ve wrestled angelic beings
and the nine lives of pathological compulsion.
I have sworn an oath against the roman calendar
and its derivative mutations.
I can be firm as cold turkey.
My two letters of recommendation are
f and u. They can be used in surf, which
is one way to step on what wants me drowned.
I have heard the hinges of the doors of the sea
creak, so I read a book beneath a tree.
I think a lie can be worse than murder but also
I have never died. I can definitely think of a time
when I had to multitask while under immense pressure,
but would prefer not to. My goal is to recall my past lives
and be free in each. My strength is being scattered
and rooted at the same time. My weakness is entertaining
a party of every kind of consequence.
My kink is a copless land where no one hoards anything.
I can start on any day you are prepared to train.
I can end on any day that ends in why not,
for real, I don’t need this,
the people got me you know,
I’m with the people.

Happy Sunday.
