simple stitches. the needle swims in tessellations. her quiet manias. barking. struggling against their leashes. sunburn demons. and lazy gravity. spoiling the world for waiting.

sharp sticks. dull places. the lie of wanting. little red wagons. on the trail of strangers. chasing the sun. the light flees. the darkness beckons.

a canvas of flesh. a palette of touch. the pigment of want too deeply embedded.

her monsters mute. continue to scream. her heroes blind. see too much. purchased by the hells to which we've committed.

red apples. fallen close to the tree. forbidden fruit content with the threat.

seldom dolls spread their plastic legs. swallow the nothing. to prove the hole is genuine.
