i do drugs with shoestring thugs

Daniel Scott


as the crow rides the eye line of plain illinois,
I’m barefoot lost as a girl and a boy,

contusions spitting absentee, redolent
of secrecy,
synaesthetes from colored words and I can’t imagine what they were,

cutting ashen,
i’m in love with my contractions
