Learning About Spleens in Jars

Chloe Ang

(after Learning about Constellations by Saddiq Dzukogi)

Today my father is not dead; he is 73
And his blessing in impeccable disguise
A sensible 27 years too early, too late
Quick, I need a crash course

Nauseating means of preservation
A rendezvous at 1:42pm
And how to learn things the hard way
Others call him reckless
My wifi calls him stupid
No one else has the courage to call it quits
After a genocide and the age of 49

Regarding poetry, mark Chloe Ang (they/them) as scared and horny. Screen time says that they spend most of their free time stalking Trixie Mattel on Twitter. Do as they say, not as they do.
