My girlfriend asks if I watch porn

and I tell her how sometimes a wide receiver catches the football with one outstretched hand in the very back corner of the end zone, and – while falling, while cradling the ball like it’s his daughter’s birthday cake a baby hedgehog library book my phone when she is just about to Facetime – another man’s long arms reach after and around him, maybe skimming his jersey – and still he tip-taps both toes onto the grass inside the white lines before collapsing.

 

Jennifer A. Howard teaches and edits Passages North in Michigan’s snowy Upper Peninsula. Her chapbook of hybrid prose, Flat Stanley Reports Back to His Third-Grader, is forthcoming from The Cupboard Pamphlet in October 2021.
