C. C. Hannett

the new year comes with a bright light

the club scene outside is screaming
and i cannot pinpoint a single,
distinguishing characteristic—

it’s just cats on ice.

another tornado we stop to film,
pushing back the runtime,

blasting iowa by slipknot;
we present the offensive finger.

as it draws closer,
we believe we’ve been making friends.
