Author’s Bio (Conditional)


Joseph M. Gerace may teach you
maroons a thing or two about people
made of fruit. Surprise

Is always betrayed in the eyes
dirt always in the heart
despite what the underwear

Model said. Mark was his name-o
and what he said he may teach you
a thing or two about people

Against a green screen should be
so predictable like tomorrow’s lottery
slanders a descending car

Its brakes cut
with pure adrenaline intentionality
which is of course no longer pure

He cries, he bakes, he ripens
back against the night he
bereaves his hearts of fire.
