Broken Summer

Empty shelves bar the rainbow

Summer sent to bed.

I licked bell jars’ jagged edges

‘til tomato salted scars formed across my head.

A busted out window

In toothless smile said, “Please.”

As lightly dusted curtains

Wavered in the breeze.

I raised a hand to shade the sun

Under a roof that once had been

And with cracking plasters’ thumb

Peeled the wallpaper thin.

A busted out window

In toothless smile said, “Please.”

As lightly dusted curtains

Wavered in the breeze.

Halls and walls walk away

From the fever inspired dead

I tucked skies between money’s layers

‘til dream dusted patchwork covered stomachs left unfed.

A busted out window

In toothless smile said, “Please.”

As lightly dusted curtains

Wavered in the breeze.

Footsteps echo once boys comings

Slipped down weathered stones

I grayed the frame by my own hair

‘til bladed prairie fixed the wave of assorted party chairs.
