building a house with broken glass

the woman
found bleeding to death in
the trunk of a car but the fetus saved

which is worth more than beauty


the taste of it like
rusting barbed wire
and listen

this nineteen year old girl
falling drunk
from a third story window

her three year old daughter

the man who would rape her

always the illusion of forward motion
when all we do is spin
in slowly shrinking circles
