dispersing & reflecting light through poetry

More untitled blah

Like lemon juice
bathing a paper cut:
the tart citrus scent
accentuates
the sweet focused pain
through the narrowest
of lacerations–
and nothing else matters.

untitled internal blah

I plaster my wall
with children’s verse versions
of deep theological treatises
using purple crayon
and unevenly cut pictures
from magazines and prayer books
and a half used glue stick
thinking myself wise all the while
my socks are wet
from the leaking pipes
and overflowing toilet
