Wide Eyes

There was
an old woman
and that’s the whole story.
Sometimes life is horrifically
Plain Jane


And I Was Just…

Busy wasting your bandwidth.
Dizzy; all the excess.
Once your duchess
twirls out and into the past tense
will you notice
I parasited your ass
and called it pretty love—


she avoids
she retries
the fire inside is morphing into an
empty bucket her eyes
so little life for so much size
and the night will leave her
