I’m a Television Version of a Person with a Broken Heart

J. Bradley

I choose shirts, sweaters
with vertical lines. I hear
such patterns shape sadness
like an adz.

There are words I use
in Scrabble but never
in real life.

The only wood I shape
is my own.

J. Bradley is the author of the forthcoming graphic poetry collection The Bones of Us (YesYes Books, 2014). He lives at iheartfailure.net.
