“You Are a Rebel” by Laura Buccieri


get up at 5am
(Read 10 pages of Andrea Gibson)

(Think about writing a love poem)

(Decide that is a bad idea)

(Create a poem based on your dream last night)

go to work
(Read Richard Siken on the L train)

make calls
(Think about traveling to Iowa to write about farming)

come home
(Decide that’s not as bad as a love poem)

(Think about writing a poem about sex)


you are made up of the parentheses
that’s what I want to tell you

you are a rebel
don’t you see that?
