Poetry
Skin puzzle 
Dismantled 
In pieces 
It breaks 
A myriad of  
Heartbreaks 
A billion 
Blue tapes 
  
I turn on  
The radio 
My mind gets 
All buzz 
My eyes get  
All blurry 
My heart  
Gives a blast 
 
The mike  
Switches on 
No words 
Old travail 
I clear my mind 
My voice 
Won’t obey 
  
Skin puzzle 
Dismantled 
In pieces 
It breaks 
A myriad of  
Heartbreaks 
A billion 
Blue tapes 
  
They give you an answer 
You don’t wanna hear 
It’s sad and 
So lonely—
No place 
For you here
  
Now ready to go.
Please do...
Draw the curtain! 
And—
Switch. off.
That.
Lamp.

Steam rises, 
So hot here!
That room—
Gets. 
All. 
Damp. 
  
Don’t want 
Those 
Wall poems 
All soiled, 
Dyed, 
Smeared, 
Smudged 
 
Skin puzzle 
Dismantled 
In pieces 
It breaks 
A myriad of  
Heartbreaks 
A billion 
Blue tapes
