Day 14: One Staggering Memory

Dusk arrives in the marrow the way

sun rises in the blood heart

beats a story in grooves on a disc blowing drapes

Dusk arrives in the marrow       the way

sun rises in the blood                   heart

beats a story in grooves on a disc    

blowing drapes            photos of Lola          

faded lace       Majorca pearls.     

Paint peels its history in songs             a sin, or many

(tell the story)                   she sways to forget-

 some vintage regret             this                our unspoken    

(tell the story)    un(buried)             lineage.

“So Addiction walks into a bar                meets

Lonely…”            scattered sorrows         

cracked watch glass            spills sand back   

to its black sand beach      pearl folds into its un(broken) shell-

Do you believe in destiny?

 One staggering memory.
