The Abominable Jinx

February 12, 2008
By Tyler Lindstrom, Highland, UT

Of such impassible
nature;
Flirtatious brick-wall
face
speaks with the
deliberate elegance of
a ballerina
Stuck in place; tears
trapped within her
plastic features.

She spins precipitantly;
eyes closed, braced,
beautiful legs
strain-
crack.

Tiny plastic shoes
stand empty.
Of the abominable jinx,
no sign abides
