FROM THE AUTHOR:
 
A poem on how the abstract symbolism becomes personal.


Black
 
bags under eyes

dirty fingernails

plagues and body counts and hopelessness

professional suits and ties

mysterious, fear, abyss obscured

crime and criminal

receiver of punishment, or justice, or scrutiny and luck

the victimized

the forgotten.

my boyfriend

and maybe our future children.
