Dolls: Somewhere Between

Trina lights her cigarette as if to punctuate
an important point.

“How is it you and I are never connected?” Trina
says to GI Joe.

“You lack the perfect plug.” he replies.

And it may be true.

These things sometimes happen:

a morning-glory never opens

a dead bee stings the sole of your foot

a giant willow tree used as whips,

a land of tall thin shadows

Illegal cries in the dark

Trina forces her nightmares on

other people.

She grabs them by the balls.
