vinyl cuts

sharp blood
triangulating in fuchsia
no one remembering their
grandmother’s pot plants
the loving windowsills

unreconstructed orange
slapped onto someone’s wall
staining someone’s mouth
sometimes you forget
to wash the evidence
of your ahistorical affair
before getting out onto the street

lines drawn without
tender perspective
there’s no point of cosy beyond
no stilts to hoist yourself
above the problem

to walk round and round
to decide waving flagpoles is no
vertical solution to your
fear of being at the same
eyeline as those not
privileged with facial vinyl
