frozen shells

January 7, 2008
By Jesseca Bear, Colorado Springs, CO

frozen shells
encased in liquid boxes
faces pushing to get out
mouth gurgles
penetratable loss

unwritten history
don't think what it's about
don't listen, for crying out loud
don't shout

pistols, stripes, and flags
smoke drifts
pirates parade wooden pinwheels
keep it up

they're drowning
