>>"Thank you."

"Facile Worship and Exile"

Rumpled cretonne bedsheets wet with tears
are clichés tossed up like Himalayan ranges.
Sleepless nights. The razor blade.
Stains in the cup.  Bare bulb etching
tributaries on a bare wall. Dead flowers.
Waiting for the lover who never arrives.
Yearning as if completing a nine-to-five,
As if alive. The suicide. Dissection of the corpse.
The letter never mailed. Apologies. The heart
Is a candle delicately set.  Vanity of being adored.
Hot blood of guitars.  “The thrill shot through me.”
Decide. Decide. Decide.
