look; one of many
by Marit Rogne

sometimes I fear the problem is
I see the world a little too
Hieronymus Bosch
when we're really all
more like "Nighthawks"
and sometimes I feel the opposite.

who you must think me to be
to speak of feelings
in such flash-card art history
is it how I think it to be

if you could see me writing this
in the tub like how it is
would it be anymore
like it is
