You could have a big dipper   

fever dream after rewatching Mad Men by Betsie Flynn






John Slattery bought me a set of new teeth

flashy things drilled into my gums

the envy of all my cats


probably I’m dreaming because why

else would there be ballgowns

swimming pools


why else would my tentacles be out

in the daytime when anyone

could walk past


still I’ve got my human face on

buttoned-up so tight

my neck aches
