straight ahead headshot

November 12, 2011

I can’t handle it  passing yr window with yr candle lit

I’ve turned away love  when I’ve most yearned for it

I can’t face the other face of my malaise

And to what end/ all its pretense/ all it portrays

My straight ahead headshot locked in a  frame

Up  hiding in an inside back book cover

And inside that book (confides a wife, lets on  a lover)

A furor of my own  all interior dialogue,

A fever I must mist over my own mirror, fog.
