Today's poem is by Emily Kendal Frey
Wants the heavier shoulder.
Dune grass firing the greenheads forward.
First off the asphalt to yes.
Grouped in wets.
Mark the territory. Skull crushed.
Glass in a hand
of swollen midpoints.
Glass is sand.
Hearts are cards.
We flip like fish. And settle in
for the grief performance.
