Mudlark No. 42 (2011)

Rotary House

Cristo cover me make me giant. 
Here women twenty years older

are sexy. The trees in the atrium 
are dying as are

          a man with rubber plugs in his head
          the insects on a sobbing wife’s blouse
          the sports bar doors
          a blonde cosmetics volunteer wearing tight stonewashed jeans trying to bring smiles
                    to our faces

even if she has to paint them 
one sepia pen

one needle in breast 
prostate lymph node

every fucking window 
at a time.
