I'm Telling You a Story
About a Woman

By Darren C. Demaree

Passing through the daily mirror,
jackstraws, nakedness, death,
the number zero, collected
pieces of air in the epic
greatest hits. The night picnic
love poems, crazy horse
in stillness and the life
of bones to come,
the common leaflets of talking
dirty to gods and my noiseless
entourage — a riot in the charm factory.
