Two Poems by Hickey Heart

I.

i’d be better if i had a room
it’d be better if it was white and silent
i’d be better if i had a canvas
it’d be better if it was large and empty
i’d be better if i had high heels
it’d better if they are higher than an albanian sidewalk
i’d be better if i had a guitar
it’d be better if it was sunburn and road worn
i’d be better if i was by myself
it’d be better if i didn’t have to make a joke
and i’d be better
and so much better
if i was better
when i hadn’t got any.


II.

i think we should visit your grandpa
if he still has a bag of stale chocolate
he gives us after he bites to check
who will die first
i didn’t get the death joke there
i’ve got it when he really died
but not because of the chocolates
mom told me that
he died of wrinkles.
