Shivers of disconsolate fear from
my elbows to my wrists in twitches
which shift the leopard print spots
of my long sleeved vest.
Their eyes are glass and face a flush intoxicated mess
of smudged holes and short brown hairs,
mottled paint with stains and grease marks
where the primer didn't do it's job.
It's hard to keep our glowering round this
garden bend since amidst the mauve-ish glow
there are moving manmade stars of bright pink
and cobalt blue that sail across the window blinds
of the party house inside.
