Scratched Records and a Broken Toe

Image

Girl, she found

Herself

Growling

In homeroom

Orange chair

Welded to green desk

Groggy

Through morning prayer

The anthem

This is the way

Follow me

I’ll follow you

Come with me

I’ll come with you

Through darkened halls

Set with skulls

Cafeteria lunch

Chimichurri smile

This kind of spice

Makes starry eyes

Cry

Mother Mary

Bless

All girls

We roam the halls

A perfect square

Stacked

Red lipstick

Purple lipstick

Black lipstick

Blue kilt of confusion

With always

The illegal red sweater

Deep

Goth

Thoughts

Drama in the basement

Insight

Origami

A way home away from home

This teacher gave

This teacher saved with

Wings

And words to fly

These girls

Women now

Hungry Ants

CFNY Djing the dance

Blissful Zoe, Emaleth Muse, Cymbelline

Dead or

Alive

Poets

Scratched

Records

Bitten nails

Baby blue walk-man

Yellow bus

November Rain

Image

Fairy shoes

With a killer sole

Girl

She stubbed her toe

The trap door

Swung

So fast

Beneath

She wasn’t looking

She was just going

Going hard

Full out

So the toe

It broke

“There’s nothing we can do.  Take something for the pain.”

There is no relief

Searching for the breeze

Seeking fuzzy dreams

Unhook

The latch

Unhinge her

Secret stash

Teenage crush

Giddy rush

Lusty hush

Bundled and sent

Twenty years late

Unforgettable face

Rotate This

Across a blazer back

Unbuttoned chest

Promiscuous

Tiger

Soundtrack

Spinning

Vest

Belt

Heels

Hard

Wood

Floor
