saint -somebody-

 

saint -somebody-

 

in a sweat

time contracts but doesn’t change

I have the uncertain role

of presiding

over miniscule

pebbles in the rain

the rain drops to preside

“they have such beautiful. . . “

 

 

ha,

ha

 

 

at the edges

she wore the crown

and then, in prison,

thought it was good

to overthrow the trust

to the musical note

–c—

in the early morning the high

letter –c—is the high point

but her necklace

at the

perforation

 

 

cast shadows

illusion of a fire

on central

 

cut into

her daughter—

to unlearn boundaries

 

to cry out

at the edge of dying

 

__

 

she was burned

she was hanged

she was drowned

she sank

 

she was scratched

she was robbed

she was raped

she was dismembered

she was shot

she was only waiting to see whether she was

damaged or

left for dead

or instruction

__

 

having a hand
