by A.J. Kaufmann

A story beyond rehearsal
outshone the blood-stains
thoughts blowing
slices of fact
caught broken

A heavy kick
pushing and pulling the world
foreign faces
jury of scarecrows
passed defense

Heathens laughing
ragged hole in moments
grab your flutes
lifted dreams
sound of restaurants
the rare lunch awake
makes the night laugh
