…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.
