Avian Flu

Nicole Steinberg

I make a list
of the saddest things:
experiments, solo in Tokyo,
failed orgasms. I press
the blunt plastic end
of the razor down;
I need more time.
The first night we
dined, I choked on
the stingray and stumbled
through Shinjuku with you,
stung and stabbed through
the throat with wing.
