EXTRACTS - Issue 8


Designer vodka by the gallon.
Gigabyte Strayhorn melodies
Shuffled and woven
Through southern suffering
And old world comfort.

Stark chaise
Memory foam
Holding solitary untouching forms
In King Size fas hion.

Rips in an aura and sewn together.
Pretension and power pills.

Taxis scented with mideastern spice.
Guarded by plastic,
Rear seat chatter and iPod drone.

A patch of hair fallen
From poison and inertia.
Covered by cashmere and
The dream of growth.

Matthew Putman
