23rd and jackson

by Liam Sheridan

i moved into a new house yesterday
i took the biggest room
i woke up this afternoon and
wandered a dollar general
drinking espresso

i went to look at the paperbacks
but it was actually things that
had been seen on TV

i wanted the dish soap
that washes ducks,
so i got it

i asked the man behind the counter
for a balloon

“we all out of helium”

i said,

“can you call me, when you get more?”
