4 Poems by A. Lenkeit

September 18, 2013 at 1:35 am | Posted in poem | 1 Comment


“don’t do anything great”
“I’ve never done anything great”
“just be late for doctor’s appointments and take the bus and have a routine”
“I like routine”
“routine likes you”
“Untitled 31″


When I grow up
I want to die

and when I die
I want to be your headstone




I want to be:
your dog

I want to:
sit in your lap

I want to:

be kicked by you in a fit of rage regarding something else where you apologize to me later

I want to:
be unconditionally loved by you


I want to die:
in your bedroom where I feel safe


“Untitled 32″


be my private landlord

I want to pay rent on your body

I’ll even make

a security deposit

gives meaning


to a “new lease on life”
