Kate Greenstreet

Unexpected meetings occur in a forest,
on a mountain,
by the sea.

I shook hands with the men.

I’m disappearing.

in me
is disappearing.

So. Is that a yes?

Some of us have taken off our wigs.
The immense, the colossal weight
of our hope. Sex is part of it.
Do you think I’m pretty?

[The future will present itself with unimaginable
ruthlessness. But we can guess.]
