Lindsey Claire Newman – 2 poems



In space we talk amongst ourselves,
through skeletons of machines,
spurt radio, infantile talk.


We walk
and speak
to the end parts of settlements


drifting further only.


Come wash apples,
kabob all of my hearts.


Pull roots for our meals
and write the songs that describe
the volatile states of our insides.





Na Lu’um

I waitressed today in my bare feet.


Nothing was ordered
and nothing was paid for,
and everything got
what everything needed.


No more.
No less.
