Hannah LeGris’ Debut Chapbook: desire is a hungry thing

New poetry for the end of the the year from Hannah LeGris!



he bought me topo chico

I touched his wrist

people asked
where do we live

together, for how long
and when did we move

here, I was leaving the next day 
we had never been 
we had never been

two seasons had passed

he took a bite of my 

I bought him ice cream 
I bleached his sink

I kissed his shoulder

I left
