Melanoma, heart attack.

Rats in attic rattle traps.

Lawsuit stolen trade secret.

Buy high sell low, owe more tax.


Are not sleeping, toss and turn,

Ruminate awaiting god damn dawn.

Flabby slouching lower back.

Promise her house but retract.

Send in the work they reject.

She’s had enough of this crap.

Come on the grass outside her.

Turn left hit the other car.

Waiter giggles can’t order.

Frozen fingers, gears won’t turn.

Sleep, mixed media, 2011, figure about 6” H standing up.
