–a lighthearted, so-called poem for difficult times–

have you ever been so dirty… ode to filth

–july 23, 2020–
springfield, ohio

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

 

out of respect
for muck that’s not already on me…
i expect
the need to shower and be rancidness-filth-free
before getting dirty once more
with a putrid stench one can’t ignore

have you ever been so dirty… ode to filth will appear in a future book of poems & stories (release date | July 2021)–
