all the brown color-
crayons are broken
in their equal boxes.
these shades made
dark as peasant flesh
unpink in their religion.

on the clap of an excused burp.
nothing good
runs clean
very often.

chinese incense tree
burns near 24 hours

free-styling this evening
being shelia kenevel
trapped in the blazing wreck of a man
kept moist
and blistered
horribly disfigured.
