California Bugs This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

May 19, 2010
Her head hangs
down like a lopsided doll
we stand, mollified
the tire swing is empty
and the dust beats leave us dead
nonsense running through our heads
like sick bugs in California
leaving out the rest
for a better movement
to stop and actually try out best
we all stop to gawk
real life is hitting us
train tracks that end
the boy and the girl meet at
different paths
in the end we figure
like long division
there's nothing new
there's actually nothing new.
