Next time shoot louder

Oh! What a beautiful thing you made.
For a moment, having been
conscious everywhere at once,
Mind stripping from cell as you so graphically painted
Onto the walls of your room.

Suitor

A girl is very aware of the way she walks.
At a wedding, that morning she took great care to pick out
the right thing to make them look at her -
She likes how the men look at her, and the things
they say when she goes around the corner, even the older ones -
drooling primates caballing about which bridesmaids they'd like to fuck.
A girl is very aware of the way she walks.

Her mother is aware of this as well.
A girl is strapped to a board in an ER bed and her mother won't look at her face
(at least they had a pretty drivers license picture to show registration).
The teeth could not be found, and it will be some time before
she walks again.
She will need to walk if they are to find her a proper suitor.

Corky

How do you fix a broken heart?

The same way it was broken
With violence and submission,
The application or the dousing of a spark

I saw you standing there with your heart shot out
Holding it in your hand
Staring.
