Four Poems

By Nathan Dragon

Poetry

 

And Every

 

He met his friend at the shop where his friend works and his friend asked him if he wanted to meet him at his house after work. After work, he met up with his friend at his friend’s house and at his friend’s house, his friend asked if he’d want to meet up the next day at the shop where he works. So, the next day, he met his friend at the shop where his friend works and his friend asked him if he wanted to meet him at his house after work.

Yeah, see you then. Each time.

He doesn’t mind anything and it’s easy this way.

 

 

Devotional Question

 

How come

all out piety

ranking near religious

or the cumulative effects of drugs

make(s) a person look and seem older than they really are?

 

 

Sticky

 

Eating an orange

I’d cut into slices

and one of the slices

fell into my nightstand drawer.

I am someone who doesn’t

like to be sticky.

I can’t say why though, since

it could be good

too.

 

 

Work Strategy

 

Don’t worry, don’t ask
