Tuesday


Some things you find

on the beach

look like voodoo spells

are you the same

wings out gliding

wave maker

that sound of

running

was a leaf

fallen

didn’t know

it was spring

K.J.G.


Restriction she said
this is too
restricting
these belts
can be tied
different ways
pretty
like this
or plain
twisted
smog nymph misplaced
in the pit again
with me drinking
complicated liquid
inside my cheeks
are spikey
seven veils
disintegrating
with no sleep
step in
sandal rips
weird looks and
will blood ever
look like it slips
under her skin
perfume eater
palomino
it will come to me
accused of acting
unnatural
in stage paint
on the missing list
chemical berry
ferocious vandal
of what we wanted
of her
it was a
wig
all along

head dress


points are for rock
and we play
kick
scrape on shoreline
ankles and figureheads
in siren face
insults don’t touch
down turned boat
sails for dry
we hope
ultra limbs fix
by notice to
get out
fit to be
cloned
only if I
vamp for good
and forget
who I was
taught to
gallows
and guillotine
shine up pretty
knives at dawn
I am hide
stair side
they will pass
down ache
worth a cry
if feral
is sharp as
I want to be
dust and scent
slum lover
cur tribe
yearing the chase
one
grip of clay
resin coated
made it valid
found in time
for a war paint
slur
for life
stained
from the head dress
down
confessing to
love and hate
not much between
dragons and swans
except in the
subway
cross the road
now we can
no
nothing ever happened
did it
scream
birth marks
water dripping
from above
cover your eyes
someone said
it was acid
or burn me
make nothing
change
the feel
of a structure
obsolete from
the start
of mid-cable
strains
leak out
citric kisses
fire the tongue
disguised as
purring
detour to page seven
bleached
in the barren
hour
of dereliction
so we’ll never know
check the door
opens
and if outside is
the same
as through the window
a diamond
won’t make you
any prettier
the sides are
moving faster
than my hand
at the lock
