HD Neglect
by Jamez Chang

What is the definition of Neglect
but a Poet high on his words,
too busy to read the Poets
to his living-room children?

I place two clay daughters inside a couch,
in front of HD rays,
streaming tweeny sitcom

I adulterate soft unformed synapses
in the name of this line—
bending better
for my adult
