catalogue (draft)

The danger of the beautifully drowned.Of root work and tunnels. Of chairs and sevens and the dark seats of movie houses.The blue betweens.The dangers of imaginary tables in lengthening rooms, of aqueducts and porcelain cup handles. The danger of lanterns in trees and the all the kitchens on fire, of stripped windowpanes and the yellow curtains skimming the sill.Of yawns and picnic tables.Backseats and train tracks.The dangers of soap and tequila.Of dictionaries and chewing gum.Hallways, stoplights, flammable skirts and driving too fast.The danger of Septembers and schoolyards, speaking while undressing, the irregular seams.
