bombshell turn signal; rutting

challenge against

corrupting legend of my family

proof of swain; faded polaroid

of joining ceremony [on foreign fen]

faces hidden; mawkish tulle

wraps and unites and binds them

under gibbousmooned skies

Lilliputians in melodious trance

dreams of empty wombs pestered

my sleep; now her and him

spinster window | mirror

now splintered | shattered

the one shard that is me

cracks against my heart
