micropoetry series for Tardigrade issue
for the late Open Space SFMOMA
H.O.B.N.(o).B.S. narrates maleness, shame, and desire from six beds from six cities where Gabriele has lain. It catalogs in no particular order four encounters with men, one masturbatory scenario, and a depressive episode. In the largeness of these landscapes, we find a poetry — and incompleteness — of memory around intimacy.
