explore more items

post-mortem i get to know you more
perhaps better than before i always dealt with great difficulty
to winter the juniper,
revealing its innards and commensalist lovers:
a screech owl, per se

after i left, what remained of us: prime
& netflix accounts
and as i scroll to buy batteries & vitamins

amazon suggests i explore more items

but they must be the registry
for your new life and i wander aisles of digital exile:
projections of your ghost of present whir
across my forehead each slide to the next—
lime deodorant, glad force flex trash bags

“explore more items” is a poem by Frank Carellini. You can see more from the author here.
