everyone get abbreviated

yeah baby do something
sexy like handslap curled
lip and eyes that look from
the corners, short skirt and
all that girly stuff, you know
what i’m asking for mussed
hair & a foggy disposition:
you have the right to remain
but red is a screaming colour
and she’s wearing it all over
her mouth.

her guilt and shame

it thickens between her shoulders
a fist at the base of her neck
with muscle closed tightly inside

like dropping sushi, chopsticks crossed
in error she laughs awkwardly with red face
and nothing but a thinsoiled napkin
soaking up pools of blacksalty soy


turning over and over
at restless midnight with
a scene from the day stuck
repeating how she said “it’s just my way”
too proudly


standing at the door monday morning
her brow furrowed in consideration
of red shoes to work which
may not be appropriate

From Antony and the Johnson's, "My Lady Story"

"I'm a hole in love
I'm a bride on fire
I am twisted
Into a starve of wire "

skeletons and wind instruments

there is a clarinet in my closet
with a box of reeds, 10 yrs old now
collecting dust
and I was thinking yesterday
about 20-something: how
quickly your closet can fill
with clarinets
