9781935904267: The New Clean: By John Sans

Jon Sands has traveled into a ridiculous world, where nothing is too hilarious to not be honest, and nothing is too honest to not get you pregnant. Best of all, he's packed us in his suitcase. He represents an ever-changing population of those raised elsewhere who find themselves beckoned by the history, mystique, and magic-makers of New York City. These poems inhabit their own contradictions, and exquisitely navigate the many complicated sides of what it means to be alive.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

EXACTLY WHAT I'M THINKING after Pablo Neruda Why can't ceramic bowls eat fruit salad out of me? Why can't I ever get my watch to its appointments on time? Why can't I make Scattergories argue with other board games? Why can't Braveheart be a little embarrassed by how much it liked me? Why isn't rent money concerned if I'll be ready come Saturday? Why can't my bedroom only really be itself around me? What if my clothes are just using me to look fresh? Why isn't my roommate proud of me for coming home drunk and eating his food? What if I shit on a bird? What if the floor and ceiling could kiss? What if my dreams always forget me? What if God isn't convinced I'm real, and loses sleep over it? What if my alarm clock could sleep in? Why can't my six-week old nephew just talk already? What if we blow death's mind? Why can't sex say that I change everything? Why can't love fall madly in Jon?
