The Iowa Review - - CONTENTS - Josh Kalscheur

I be­lieve in my blood pres­sure. It’s a bump on the front of my leg. It has a life of its own be­cause it has an eye. Its life I don’t be­lieve has me in mind. I be­lieve read­ing has ru­ined my see­ing and I be­lieve in read­ing the safety of the road through warm eye con­tact. I think I’m see­ing a be­liev­able heat. The cor­ner awn­ing is clas­sic shitty green. I’m so at home. I re­move a cured meat of its cas­ing. It’s so pa­thetic on its own but here it is. I add wa­ter to a pan hop­ing it’ll go away. I go to town on what I’ve planned. There’s a flimsy sign to be put out.

There’s gray­ish wa­ter in the sink I should empty. I’m ready in cases of pleasure.
