Selections from Rupi Kaur’s Newest Poetry Collection, A Thousand Screaming Ants

your kisses

like rotten, balls of dirty mud dirt

dirty dirty dirty dirt

all from the earth we,

daughter,

grow

into a plant

plants

water your plants with the tears of

a thousand screaming ants

the ants are boys

they are made of dirt also

they are balls of dirt

because they have balls

just waiting to be overlooked and

stepped on

balls

i said balls

-rupi kaur

(nina wilson)

 

i want to apologize to all the women

i have been a bitch to

-rupi kaur

(nina wilson)

 

like a candle

you were wax

you melted

when there was that heatwave at madame tussauds

i should really stop pretending im in a relationship with george clooney

-rupi kaur

(nina wilson)
