On Her Having Arrived

Hannah Sanghee Park

He thickets in. He thickens.     The AA
meeting ran late: he brandished a BB
gun and the cops were called. Shot ten CC’s
of something slowing in him.     Type AB
blood, type A personality, B.A.
in French: this only goes one way (AB).

Once, on their way to Galt, CA:
snared, small palms. He fiddled with the A/C
and the radio. Said in 5 BC
the A/C was better. Missed his CB
radio.     He swerved. Blew a BAC
near .3. Reciting the ABCs
backwards, trying to find his AAA
papers: failures. “MAKE SURE YOU CALL A CAB
NEXT TIME,” yelled the sheriff.
                                                  The BBC
showed him to her, mug/bloodshot.     CCC
poster-child failure     blamed the BBB.
Now it’s worldwide     now watch: the CBC
posted contact numbers to ACA
counselors for ‘depression’.     CAA
clients argued for the movie rights.
                                                  A
for attrition     for attraction. And be
the only one inside to ever see
the lonely one’s insides.     And to watch a
man die, and die to a thought, shaking bee
-like to the wash and cusps of a held sea.
