in erko + five floors up – Holly Friedlander

the kitchen here is fresh-mopped
new terraces in shades of black and white
and grey for best SEO results they say
use ‘clubkidrave’ or ‘minimalist 90s
aesthetic’ thing sawn
a magpie shoots over and scores
of streets here are narrow but clean
a fluke hits the bottom of the sea
envision throwing myself
from this balcony but landing
in a firefighters’ net soft like brie
bounce once supine
feel my ash face pull pink lines
smooshed into this macrame
