Stormy

Family Feuds/ portraits

Feelings raging 
do not drive drunk

we kill cockroaches

heavy headed hearts loaded like led
dropped into the center o f the third ward/world

frayed caps cocked to the side
flannel shirts with shirts underneath
and black marks like ashes
flaking against tired skin

swirl of confusion
