Random Poem:


she was an angel,
emanating bright lights
evaporating from the corners,
my hazel piece of heaven
between the sores on my arms,
fresh from a shower in
the february night
we laid open in her bed,
the light from the sirens
spilling through the shade
holding her in red and blue
blinded and frozen in every flash
like a martyred dream,
the fog on the glass
still wet with the memory of our breath
