Ted Powers

from Please Light Up

Accents are cute
like things in limited supply
should be. For instance
no one is calling me.
I appreciate that.
Now I can watch
my dramatic movies
and clutch a pillow.
I am giving the pillow
weird thoughts. Thoughts
it can work with.


Ted Powers lives in Northampton and attends UMass-Amherst. His poems have appeared in Strange Machine, NOO Journal, GlitterPony, and Sixth Finch, among others.
