Shay Alexi – “And This Time the Butter Rejects the Knife”

 

Performing at the 2018 Rustbelt Poetry Festival.

“Remember when you asked some dumb shit on our first date like, ‘What’s your favorite color?’ I said, ‘Yellow.’ What I meant to say was, ‘The color of myself.’ What I meant to say was, ‘My favorite color is myself.’”
