Human-waste

A man on the subway Sunken cheeks, skinny bones, White tufts of hair on his head Blue, coming on grey, eyes Carved roads on his forehead – marks from all the times he’s reacted to something Laughinkles next to his eyes and I see I see his stories playing before his eyes a life livedContinue reading “Human-waste”

How the glitter plays in the light from the lampposts?” He did not answer. “Hello?” “Yes, yes I have seen it, a long time ago.” “ButContinue reading “Shimmery shining doom”

Our Independent Earth
