If you’re going to fuck me,

fuck me to the rhythm of the hava nagila

and with the urgency of exodus.

 

If you’re going to fuck me,

do so iambically—

whisper “slicha,”

but only if you mean it.

If you’re going to fuck me,

do so with the passion of age

and the wisdom of youth.

If you’re going to fuck me,

do so with faith

and fuck morals and into my strident agnosticism.

But whatever you do,

please, please don’t fuck me 

2400s

I was 43 minutes early for my train. I waited on a wet bench and watched the kids from Germantown Friends’ athletic fields file onto the other side of the tracks. I thought about their college database and counselors, and although I liked to think I liked the gritty nature and incessant tradition of my 150-year-old Central High, I did still long for clean carpets and 2400s. 

my friends are more talented than me

January sucks

 I don’t have to tell you that you met her in Israel

and I don’t have to tell you that faith is important

but I may have to tell you that I almost bought a gold star of david necklace

for purely emulatory reasons
