Stitches

By
I’m a teenage lobotomy
From 1920’s marquees; Nosferatu, Dracula and
Frankenstein …
From the ivy that shallows the backyard
and
swamp grass that devours the lily pads


on the rainy ponds of dark water.

The insatiable “tick, tock, tick, tock”

Of a Geiger counter

Dusty photos and dirty film in the attic
I have Halloween spirit that…
smells like teen spirit


I’m Dead!

I’m from what these people have made me

a contusion in my brain


a tumor of emotion
These people left me in

sutures

in stitches.

Now I stand like a HORROR film
psycho…
like a Nosferatu, a Dracula, a Frankenstein

like a man that crawls like a worm from the bird
