…I have a new poem, “A Recent Split” up at Orion Headless and here under words in print.

Also, yesterday I received the inaugural issue of Mad Rush with one of my poems in it:

The Fashion Model

You are no longer so beautiful.
A leper now,
Flakes fall from your lips when you speak or sip
Or try to skim a kiss.
Your skin is ruddy dandruff dust.
Your hair is wicked white nests.
Just this instant your bones are molding,
Your organs molting.
The smell is rancid yet familiar,
As unforgiving as damnation
And so I think I’ll stay here
Watching you smolder
Every patch of plastic melting
For all to see.
