We Can Talk About Her Now

for Emily K. Proeber

Simply genius,

Her unnecessarily large words
Make people jump.
A tortoise sleeps in her windowsill.

Sitting on the couch by herself,
She miscalculates sickness and misses
The end of the world.

She looks for the Mayans,
Draws a white elephant
For a 2013 calendar.

This collective amnesia
Rattles her picture window.
