heartbreak guitar
plays in the background of a
tuesday afternoon
bending strings

outside: snow is thawing
drip drip drip (gutter tap)
i skipped class again,
lagged behind the rest,
that i might listen
to the turning of laundry in the drier
scraping hot buttons, faded jeans
wrapped in dysthymia

a note that will ring

while the people upstairs
walk in high heels and heavy feet

move along

hey heather. love your new site. i'm 'specially into "she is putting on weight," and "the folds of her dress." but of course i love them all.
