Random Poem:

it isn't fair
megabyte

caught by the necklace on wrapping paper teeth
 1
you would bow over dowry gifts
 2
waiting out the stalling train and skipping violin
 3
while mercenaries raid memory lane
 4
a tape from each shelf, leaving methamphetamine holes
 5
lifted arms grappling fog people
 6
and love waits for whispered measures on powerful mornings
 7
 
 
pour red glass like sifted flour glue and strawberry blood
 8
drink our dreams like wine
 9
perfect wrath, boil down to carbon shells
 10
and bottom lines
 11
rusty cigarettes proclaim their freedom
 12
ladling soupy smoke into tupperware
 13
after failure the cancer will still be cold
 14
last week's leftovers
 15
and your abusive father in
 16
quick freeze, waiting for you to give up
 17
