Window Dressing

Poem By Julie Bond

We're Frankenstein creations-faces built
by happenstance of Igor-scavenged shreds.
My father's eyes, my cousin's smile, atilt
and strangely loved on unknown cipher heads
unwitting in resemblance to my dead.

because the power flickers at a cloud.
The surging rumble proves an indiscreet
reminder of their cellar, and the crowd
