Hilary Sideris


I miss my still closed
gym, walking uphill

on the elliptical’s
steep slope, entitled to

an hour alone at work
day’s end without

you asking if I’ve seen
your phone or if I knew

the ancient Romans
cleaned with urine.

Many years ago, as a child with 20/20 vision in Indiana, Hilary Sideris shot her neighbor with a BB gun.
