The red light continues to blink on my answering
machine and I stepped out ages ago to pick
up a coke and some pepper, some cigarettes
Handy-wipes, I love them, and everything changed
it will never come back that clear single in-
tention, though it seems there were two or three.
—Eileen Myles, from “Mad Pepper.” Art by Angela Dufresne.
Love this painting by my former professor at SLC, Angela Dufresne and love even more that it’s paired with some Eileen Myles.
