Two Poems
Kendra Malone

There Is Nothing To Be Ashamed Of, Unless You Are Talking About Those
Overly Sentimental Conversations You Have Late At Night With Drunk Friends

i smelled his book
while he touched
my father's tooth

Some Day I Hope There Is A Song With My Name In The Title,
But Not Actually About Me, But The Odds Of That Happening
Are Against Me Because My Name Is Just A Little Bit Unusual

you are not nostalgic
for things before
your time
i just don't
understand that
