from LEO

The three main activities, Leo overhears, are: hydrating, smiling, & sleeping. Leo wants love—Leo realizes this isn’t in the conversation. Leo dreams of water instead of sports, laughter with overt facial expressions, dreams. Leo wakes up for work wishing he could jerk off on & be swallowed into the comforter he looks at like an ex-wife. Leo makes heavenly dollars on deliverance outside the fourteenth bathroom of the convenience place in his beautiful mind. Leo wakes up again.

Parker Tettleton is a Leo, a vegan, a resident of Portland, Oregon. He is also the author of the grocery-shopping-themed collection Greens (Thunderclap Press, 2012) as well as the chapbooks Same Opposite (Thunderclap Press, 2010) & Ours Mine Yours (Pity Milk Press, 2014). More or less is here.
