a clashing youth

August 10, 2008
By Iva Petrov, Palo Alto, CA

awkward doubletakes
persistently surprising
like pearls in
oyster’s flesh
but not glittering
much like embers do
of the crinkling papers,
simply dull,
incandescent
ignited by a sudden
longing not to feel the bodies
in such a crowded room?
everything is obsolete,
and everything is white
