Look Through

Original source material

Self-Defense (Poetry)

Painted nails and towers

Of every part of me,

Divided, categorised , noted in books.

Clippings and Creams.

Thoughts and shirts, clever tailoring.

Photos of happy chapters

Music deaf to nuance.


Love of galleries

Of dark beer

A golem in the corner

Heart ripped out and clumsily patched

Books, books, books,


All piled before the precipice

Willingly, I would fling.
