Subordinate

Maybe that’s what she meant
when I saw her for just that moment,
handcuffed and gleeful, a thinker
without a filter, propped on the curb
while police roamed around her, cigarette dangling between her lips

Lisa Zaran thinks life is a dream full of toothaches and heartbreaks.

Father Won’t You Be My Friend

It’s not because I was your daughter
you treated me in such a way

as if the sweetness lay
in not having to talk about anything

important, our conversations weighed
on sugar and soft and when you died

I craved salt.

Falling Star 

I feel in some ways
a child again, living
in a moment, reliving
a memory that has just
now crept up, I follow
the path of dreams, I 
deserve the world.
