Ethan Paquin

A Vision, Winter

Through the syrup of night, trees — over there.

Beauty approaches with knocked-out teeth.

Hard to persuade someone who refuses to admit
to the jeweled tang
  of their piss —

but I’ll try. She’s looking for me.

She’s not looking for anyone else. I know this.

Swing, fat ballerina,
you’ve gained weight.

I’ll see you through the lean times —
  diets, forced vomiting, the like.

On my back I wear a child’s piano —

Tinkled notes of midnight, crisply frozen grass
