Facts about Snakes & Hearts, a 2015 poetry chapbook by Flower Conroy

The Future Imperfect Club

In the bathroom, tiny bottles
of formaldehyde pixies.
On the dance floor, over-
exposed out-of-body, out-of-mind.
The hours’ absolute tense system.
I will carry a jar of glowing worms.
They’ll nibble through the universe.
They’ll chew my name in the stars.
The hole they’ll leave will be a real
hole. I’ll have a cocktail in hand
& confetti in my hair.
