pearls

nice break

Posted in nothing special by maggie on 2007/06/20

distraught mind-readers flock vacant lots scraped bone banged
unlike careless oaths shot at random targeted innocents
unlike smudged ghosts stirred into faded brick ruins
unaccustomed to heat nausea overheard parentheticals
of quick ways out thick no gods papered up overhead

where mirrors prowl catch mock fitted eye trapdoors
(calm) hadn't given away serious names & numbers
cottonmouth shadows bloat innocently counterclockwise
irreversibly forcing anything sharp in lockstep
one behind another feigned escape corridor echoes

disfigured girls on unmade beds quickly hesitating
between father's dry heaven and mother's slick hell
molten trauma centers reserved for phantom repetitions
(and know where the crack is when they come for you)
