sandpaper and blue pearls

Written by: Anthony Slausen

sandpaper hearts
take away the roads
dig a hole
fill your moat 
lifeless
gold

smooth texture from life
bleach the silver fom crosshair 
eyes
the color of blanks
a string 
of blue pearls
march along the plywood vein
tapping at this tired thing
tap-tap...tap-tap

singing produce =produce or starve
no time to act tired
count those aces... tight
another day-another race
don't make a mistake
tired thing snoring 
o'er
sandpapered casket
tap-tap
