from Danny Starr: A Lament
I gave you my copy
of Thom Gunn’s Boss Cupid
for as soon as you called
that thing that clicked Christ (what else could it be called?)
I knew there’d be no stopping it.
I’d thought this, too, of the meth
doing its royal treatment to your mouth,
which never deranged fully into myth
the likes of which plaster
billboards: those disasters,
toothless, pocked with sores,
you said, were most likely actors.
