Deception, Hypocracy, Untruth

Poem By Lalleshwari

Most tender eyes upon the womb
Of a child of a night'
The vampire sits forlornly at her window in
Tallahassee, Florida'watching the switchbacks of
The hills,
And the apartments that roll through them
Like a labyrinth'the blue children going
To school'getting up
Kitty-cornered to the graveyards: all the lost
Heroes forsaken to their epitaphs'
The heavens having sunken up to her
Elbows'the airplanes her berets'
Her parents lost somewhere in the sea like
The mixing teardrops of one too many gods.

In reddish frilly messes
Eat their lunch alone,
Served by brunette waitresses

A Single Kiss

Well, it is raining, and the raindrops make
Furtive areolas in the puddles of muddy bellies,
And their mists are like nebulous shrouds,
And unfertilized thoughts of maidens dreaming of

With others old and gray,
Or not so old at all—Maybe they will
Mostly be fair haired and young,
If it should be a tragedy. Who knows?

going down the lines like

for the ambulance her red light
