Old Navy
T J Max
they are clothing stores
pricking logs
deserted forests
they are relatives in the wild
knocking doors
ascending babes,
sad news stop a boy from dreaming
bursting sprouts
crying nightingales
a wine cup helps some lost visitors
raged temples
raw salts
never judge fate by red flesh and green face
old navy

short story slam week 43, views from panama city , april 21, 2016 to may 8, 2016

like the morning dew

that drains under sun

and slips

into the air


and higher

until the sheen


its body


up and up

into outer space

out of our view


which she sets it free


from constrains

it bubbles up red wind

and blows herself
