Limbs across the peak
of a wrenching divide,
bricked-over eyes
pouring ribbon trails
through steaming masonry.

Painted hair stuck
to an inky brain,
the torso a twanging boomerang,
each blood vessel
a roller coaster car.

Marks of shovel and claw
turning green in gashed red plastic
oil gushing from abandoned media
in wadded-up leather cemeteries,
forks of dark grey steam
tapping a crowded lung.

High-backed chairs facing
rivulets of moss
on a cracked and spackled wall
antennae scraping a fluorescent dish
a steeple's ceiling,
the rope of a disintegrated bell.
