from CARTOGRAPHY by Anna Vogelzang



she said,
"we've lost too many good women
up to madison, wisconsin
please don't go
stay afloat
& sail the seas instead"

cause new york can be
a different kind of beast
if you put away your teeth
leave it be
let it hunt
bitter & free

but still i propose
to him by telephone
once the gin's lodged in my bones
& you all can pretend
that that's my reason
but don't worry i'll know

in 10 days i will be the age
that my mother was
when she found out
about me
goodbye, 23

& i did not die
as i thought i might
in fact, i'm very much alive
you know what they say
these are the best years
of our lives

& i know it's all
i know i'm all
& i know i'm right
where i belong
counting change
& miles
& swan songs

i will fly out
of this little town
leave my lakes
& drown my superstitions
i only believe
in women
