Her collaborative chapbook with Mary Stone Dockery, Honey and Bandages, is forthcoming from Folded Word Press.




Catherine

She got busted again today -
handcuffed, twisted wrists,
pushed up against the law.
She washes herself, gasping
lungfuls of scum and bleach.
Tire tracks don't rinse clean.

Take-out Thai cartons do little
for bone-deep ache. She gives the next man
the go-ahead, flirting simple with chemicals.
He leaves enough to be desired. She retires.

Coupled with sunrise (too cold to breathe)
bus-waiting sessions, too dark
to read her agenda for each day--
her stab at organization, predictability,
stability under grown-up gloom scrutiny--
walking pavement erodes the sole,

So: she did not mind drowning so much
as the lonely dripping of child-rockets
ripped free, their lazy spiral
and knock into nothing.
